SMRT Mouth LLC. has announced its development of the SMRT Mouth guard, a next-generation hydration-sensing mouth guard outfitted with sensors that deliver updated information on an athlete’s biometrics. The data collected can be utilized to enhance player and team performance, as well as head-off serious health complications that arise from aggressive, competitive play. The mouth guard is particularly geared towards augmenting and improving play in youth athletics.
“Kids are dying to play sports — -sometimes literally,” explained Dana Hawes, CEO and co-founder of SMRT Mouth LLC. “It doesn’t have to be that way.” Hawes’s passion is safety in sports, and he’s particularly concerned about younger players since they suffer disproportionately from sports-related complications. “The next generation of elite athletes won’t make it to the world stage if they don’t survive the playground. We want athletes to push themselves to peak performance with greater confidence that hydration and exertion are within healthy ranges.” These are issues that can be more easily managed via biometric data that reveals an athlete’s breathing, pulse, and hydration levels.
Mike Robinson, the President of SMRT Mouth LLC. and former NFC champion who helped the Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII, puts his stamp of approval on the data-augmented mouth guard. The SMRT Mouth guard utilizes the most advanced technology available and pairs it with one of the most vital pieces of sports equipment on the field — -the mouth guard. Mouth guards are used in a broad range of competitive sports, including football, soccer, and martial arts; since mouth guards are already approved for use in athletic competitions, the SMRT Mouth guard can be used immediately by coaches and players. The device fits snugly inside the mouth, providing protection for the teeth while delivering real-time information to the sidelines.
Athletic trainers are particularly concerned about boosting athletic performance while maintaining optimal health levels. Jason Elkin of Elkin Sports Performance notes that “I believe that the innovation of the SMRT Mouth guard can be a fantastic tool, not only to the athletic training staff at every level, but to strength and conditioning coaches.” Parents can also rest easier during practice and games knowing that their child’s personal health is being carefully monitored and managed.
The SMRT Mouth guard measures the osmolality (the particle concentration of certain chemicals) of a user’s saliva by utilizing high-sensitivity sensors that send that data via Bluetooth to a mobile device. When individualized, pre-set thresholds are achieved, the device alerts the coach, parent, or guardian to take action. While the SMRT Mouth guard is constructed from high-quality materials, it is targeted at a broad audience, and young players and coaches can reap the benefits of the same types of data available to the pros.
The SMRT Mouth is geared towards optimizing competitiveness, but it also places a strong emphasis on key biometrics such as hydration and respiratory functioning. The device allows for the real-time monitoring hydration and circulation levels. These are especially important vitals to monitor, since dehydration underpins serious complications (such as cerebral edema and hypovolemic shock) and respiratory problems, such as asthma, can lead to pneumonia and heart attacks. The SMRT Mouth guard provides a two-fold benefit to prevent heat-related injuries and help keep the body in personalized, optimal biometric ranges for performance.
