Dual-arch Technology is the safest-play for all contact sports
and Walmart sees this Tested and Proven Sports Safety Technology
as the BEST investment in everyone’s future – Theirs and their patrons !

Tested and Proven = Peace of Mind.  No guard can stop all injuries but using a true Dual-Arch guard is the best defense against ” Impact energies entering the base of the skull from Lower Jaw Impacts “. Add full braces coverage and protection, a substantial dental warranty and increased ability to breathe, and dual-arch quickly becomes superior in performance and protection when compared to mass-produced, not biomechanically tested upper style guards.

New Georgia State Law ‘in process’ for Dual-Arch Protective Oral Appliance Designs

2011 Graph of major mouth guard brands – Impact tested !
Finally ! 
A state legislative commission has investigated, reviewed, and passed a needed standard for effective oral appliance/mouth guard design, functionality, and effectiveness for their state’s aspiring amateur fighters, and the up-and- coming MMA/NHB style of ring/cage competition.

Former boxing veteran and Georgia Amateur Boxing & Amateur MMA Commissioner Andy Foster(now residing over California’s Amateur Boxing & MMA Commission) has been a driving force in getting effective guard designs approved and inferior designs away from the sport he has participated in, and now oversees in California.

“I used Brain-Pad(dual-arch) design in all my fights. I love it. I think its a great piece of safety equipment.

It’s approved to be used.”.

– Andy Foster
 Former Director of the Am. Boxing & MMA Commission of Georgia.
 Presently the Director of the Am. Boxing & MMA Commission of California.

Georgia-Dual-Arch-Rule-4_blogThis dual-arch mouth guard standard aims to inform and protect participants state-wide and addresses, for the first time, that some mouth guard technology is much safer others.  We thank Andy for all his work and efforts to bring this needed standard into law in the State of Georgia.
Currently, mouth guards are the only piece of protective equipment that have no national standards implemented for quality, effectiveness of design, nor impact absorptive thresholds or ratings regarding impact energy reduction and oral/facial protection.

Wonder if your MG is really effective & protective when put to the test ?
Some name brand guards were impact tested and the results are surprising –

Brain-Pad Technology is effective – Stephen D. Smith, D.M.D., Paoli, Pa.

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.

Cordially,

Stephen D. Smith, D.M.D., Paoli, Pa.

… and of course, he got another Brain-pad

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.

08 2012 – Brain-Pad will Continue to Advertise its Products Protections ‘ to the Base of the Skull ‘ and ‘TMJ’

” 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 –

Chin-cup Loading Forces slam the jaw back into the Vital TMJ…over and over and over !

The graphic speaks volumes about the JAW / TMJ / Base of Skull  relationship.
Brain-Pad’s dual arched design secure the jaw from SLAMMING the TMJ !

Any hits to the face mask are transmitted to the chin-cup, jaw, TMJ, and into the Base of Skull.  Ask any boxer how the easiest way to be successful in the ring . . . . . . ‘Hit him across his jaw!’.  The helmet can be struck from numerous angles, and many of these impacts are directed into the chin-cup and Jaw.

So why do helmet designs overlook this chin-strap loading of an unprotected, vital body socket extremely close to the base of the skull ?
