Mouthguards have been tested for impact energy absorption using drop-ball and/or pendulum devices. While all reports show efficiency of the mouthguard, the impact absorption abilities reported differ considerably. This difference has been attributed to differences of mouthguard material, design, and the impact force used. However, it is also possibly because of the difference in the sensors used in the experiments. The purpose of this study was to test three types of sensors and to assess which… CONTINUE READING
