Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 9, 2010
For his first season with the Miami Heat, LeBron James is wearing The Gladiator® with the Power Grip™, a new patent-pending custom guard design. For the home opening game LeBron selected a special 3D “fang” image from Sport Guard Inc. (SGI). In honor of the star basketball player, a “LeBron” high performance Gladiator will be available along with a LeBron Fang Gladiator® for purchase at the new gladiatorguards.com website.
“LeBron’s athletic trainer selected the Gladiator® with the Power Grip™ because it’s the most protective mouthguard he can wear. This custom guard is engineered to grab, move and lock the lower jaw into a slightly forward position for a true athletic advantage,” explains Bobbie Quinn, co-founder of SGI.
Kinesiology studies show that the power grip technology behind the new The Gladiator® Power Grip™ mouthguard brings more than a 17% gain in extremity strength, with less stress on the temporomandibular joint, leaving the athlete’s body more relaxed for greater range of motion, flexibility, and balance.
“We’re out to make custom guards easy to wear and comfortable, but we’re not stopping there. As proven with the new Gladiator® chosen by LeBron James, a mouthguard can do much more than the critical job of protecting athletes from sports injuries—it can actually enhance athletic performance,” states Quinn.
The Power Grip™ is also designed to look cool, so all athletes—especially kids— will actually want to wear them. Bobbie Quinn’s goal, and the goal of SGI, is to protect kids around the globe. Sport Guard Inc. has been leading the industry, designing custom mouthguards that are actually comfortable and fun to wear. Quinn expects that LeBron James’s choosing the “Fang” for his first season with the Miami Heat will help move that initiative forward.
“By bringing attention to his mouthguard, a piece of protective equipment not mandated by the NBA, LeBron shows his support of safety in sports. This is a very important message to all athletes when sports injuries are front page news every day,” explains Quinn.
