SISU® is made from a non-compressible, perforated material and doesn’t cave in under impact like conventional mouthguards. 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.
“the perforations in the SISU mouthguard act similar to the trusses on a bridge, allowing the structure to flex when an impact occurs.”
Johannes Schwank, Ph.D
Diffusix™ technology works with unique impact-absorbing perforations and special “crumple zones” which direct the impact forces away from your teeth. When a SISU mouthguard is properly fitted, these energy-absorbing zones direct forces away from your teeth, reducing the risk of dental injury.
But why the perforations?
There are several reasons why the perforations are important:
- They help strengthen the material by oscillating under impact, similar to how support systems function for a bridge.
- They help you best fit your SISU because they allow for air to freely flow through the guard. This gives you a very snug fit, allowing you to clearly communicate with teammates and easily breathe while wearing your guard.
- They improve the fitting process by allowing airflow through the material.
- They enable you to freely drink water and stay hydrated during gameplay, and also experience less drooling.
