In our lab; we put each mouth guard through strenuous testing to see how it performs in relation to its competitors. What we’ve found is that, when compared to a conventional mouth guard with greater thickness, both the SISU™ Aero and SISU™ Max absorb significantly greater impact forces, better protecting your teeth from damage.
Less transfer of impact forces to teeth means better protection against dental injury.
Storage modulus is a very important parameter for mouth guards because it is a measure of how much impact energy can be elastically stored in the material. The SISU™ material with a storage modulus of 450 MPa; has the capacity to dissipate 10 times more energy in the form of rebound energy than EVA; with a storage modulus of 40 MPa.
Tensile strength describes the maximum stress the material can sustain before failure. The range of tensile strength of SISU™ material* is at least 30% higher when compared to EVA** which is used in most OTC mouth guards.
SISU™ is made from a non-compressible, perforated material and doesn't cave in under impact like conventional mouth guards. Using our one-of-a-kind Diffusix™ technology, the impact force is distributed over larger areas, which means less risk of dental injury during competition.
