The FITGuard Keeps Athletes Safe with a Smart Mouth Guard Design

The FITGuard is revolutionary mouth guard design that features embedded technology to help decrease the amount of concussions and sport injuries that players endure. The smart mouth piece creatively tracks data to an accompanying app thanks to sensors placed on the inside of the guard.

While a traditional mouth guard does prevent injury with its rubber design, the FITGuard goes one step further by analyzing impacts and color coding the severity of the injury. The mouth piece features several LED lights that are connected to sensors. When an impact is felt, the LED lights flicker either green to denote a low impact, blue to denote a more intense hit and red to signify an injury was probably endured. This is ideal for an instant diagnosis that could lead to more effective and rapid treatment.
