PROTECTION DRIVES PERFORMANCE.
BUT PROTECTION COMES FIRST.
Research confirms that confidence in protection can help create a mental state in which an athlete can better focus on game performance, undistracted by a poor fitting, uncomfortable mouthguard that chokes breathing and limits communication with team mates.
Performance mouthguards, mouthpieces and mouthwear that advertise increased strength and performance are typically called MORA (Mandibular Oral Repositioning Appliance) mouthguards. MORA technology provides optimum positioning and “bracing” of the lower jaw, neck and shoulders so that the muscles work more efficiently, thus conserving energy for the muscles controlling the arms and legs, which may increase strength.
For 2012 Shock Doctor offers over ten MORA mouthguards, having been the first to offer multiple MORA mouthguards since 2004. MORA may benefit some athletes. That’s why we design it in. However, we recognize that peer-reviewed scientific research results are inconsistent. Nevertheless, recent research shows that Shock Doctor MORA mouthguards, meet and exceed the strength and power results of custom bite mouthguards at 20 times the price. At Shock Doctor protection comes first. Athletes count on it every time they play.
