Charles Boutin had a great week wearing the Pro+ by Brain-Pad!

Charles has been playing with a Pro+ for the past two season and is having a great start to this season with a 5 points game (1 goal, 4 assist) in a 5 to 1 win last week and help his team tie the next game in a 4-4 draw after trailing 0-4 .
Brain-Pad-canadaHckyThis kid was the only player wearing Brain Pad and now he will  have 10 of his teammates joining him.
Brain-Pad-canadaHcky2Charles father, Serge Boutin who works at the Radio-Canada ,was getting a new model  for his son from Vic Theriault after playing two   full season wearing the Pro +.  Word got out how much these players like and I was ask to meet the coaches and parents who all agreed to participate in a research program to see how many stick with that model with team president Sylvain Petelle and coach Benoit Courchesnes .This will  give the product a serious look and try out in hard hitting kids hockey.

We now will follow 11 kids from the Elites Bantam “CC”  in the Federation de L’Est Hockey who  agreed to give it a serious try and must be congratulated for being pro active in the fight to reduce tooth and jaw-base of skull injuries in the fast game of hockey.

It is really that easy to “Reduce jaw impact energy from entering his jaw-joints & the base of his skull!”.  Brain-Pad compliments even the best helmets available!

Just look at the results of this NFL Funded Study testing Name-Brand guards –
The higher the Bar on the graph, the more energy recorded in the head-form sensors –

This is the Low Speed Impact Graph – Peak acceleration references the jaw’s velocity prior to slamming into the head-form’s TMJ Sockets:2011 study - low speed graph - emailHow about a High Speed Impact ?  Did the Brain-Pad PRO+, win the day again ?
2011 Viano Study - high speed impact graph - emailLooks like we have a winner! . . . If winning means keeping malicious impact energy away from your jaw-joints/TMJ sockets and outside of the base of your skull . . .

Brain-Pad now has its newest design available this winter season – The 3XS Jaw-Joint Protector in black and translucent blue or white and translucent black.  The 3XS is based from the PRO+ design and adds a 3rd impact absorbing thermoplastic in the channel arms which further reduces impacts.  So get a mouth guard and take your chances.  Or get a Brain-Pad Jaw-Joint Protector and reduce your chances of jaw impact injury!

Nancy Drolet – Canadian Sport Celebrity Embraces Dual-Arch Brain-Pads. Helps Spread Awareness.

Dual-Arch design effectiveness has separated the Mouth Guard Industry.

The question quickly becomes, why would anyone knowingly use a lesser guard design after understanding the risks, and that Brain-Pad’s Dual-Arch is the ONLY tested and proven impact reducing design available ?

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 –
