I support the dual arch technology you have developed for the purpose of jaw impact reduction. Certainly cushioning the condyle and teeth with a 3-4 mm interocclusal elastomeric material helps reduce impact upward against the glenoid fossa and skull. The temporal bone is thinnest at the top of the glenoid fossa/housing of the TMJ, with as little as 1/8″ to 1/16″ thickness, and susceptible to injury, including perforation. The helmeted sports accelerate a whiplash fulcrum effect on the temporomandibular joint through chinstrap force. Cushioning the mandible down and forward is essential in mouthguard design related to impact energy mittigation. This also occurs with martial arts impact sports where a direct blow to the jaw can occur.
The design of airway opening for breathing, and protection of all the teeth are other advantages of your design.

My son won the AAU State championship this year for his divison in TKD at the Indiana State Championships. He went on to earn a Bronze Medal at Nationals and is now #3 in the country in his division. We only use your product and I am attaching a photo of him on the podium getting his Gold medal and you can see the mouth guard plain as day. I recently had to replace his mouth guard and of course got another brain pad. If ever we can give a testimonial or endorse your product please let us know. You make great stuff! Keep up the good work.

” Jaw Impact energy has to go somewhere. “. This statement is very obvious and powerful. When the jaw is stuck, it then strikes the TMJ socket walls. The additional impact energy then goes where ? Across the socket, in the direction of the impact? Which other direction could it continue? So, the preevious being understood, what is behind, and what rests above the TMJ sockets ? Hint – 5 letters, starts with a “B” . . . . and controls a person’s existence, perceptions, judgements and demeanor . . .
Brain-Pad’s effectiveness claims (which are based on 3 independent, bio mechanical research projects), have been recently scrutinized by the FTC. Even after reviewing the research(which no other mouth guard company has had done on their products’ behalf)
the FTC decided Brain-Pad does not have enough research to make a concussion-reducing claim from lower jaw impacts in its retail space. But 1 more time . . . The jaw is impacted into the TMJ sockets from a full-speed contact sport punch or kick.
Where does the impact energy . . . go ? Across the TMJ and into the base of the skull
which contains what vital body part ?
Here is Brain-Pad’s response to being limited in its 3x researched claims . . . . that no other mouth guard company has even attempted to fund nor have conducted to back its ‘ similar ‘ claims –
