"From the first time I tried the AgilityGuard, I was shocked; I couldn't believe the difference it made. As a goalie there are many saves that require flexibility and athleticism, and the AgilityGuard gives me that edge - I can more fluidly and easily move into positions that I otherwise would have found to be difficult to achieve. I also found that the basic movement I do as a goalie was more smooth and agile, helping to get me into position. I'm excited to go through this season with this guard!

The NHL Combines measures, among other things, (i) repeatable power by way of a 150-pound bench press, (ii) strength and explosive power by way of a standing long jump, (iii) peak power by means of a vertical leap, and (iv) peak power output during a 30 second Wingate Cycle Ergometer test. A recent study by Rutgers University on individuals using a neuromuscular dentistry-designed mouthguard reported significant improvement in vertical jump and peak power during a 30 second WAn t test.
Imagine always being one step ahead. Accelerating, reacting, and competing faster than before. Improve your overall speed and reaction time and you’ll improve the way you play. AgilityGuard™ gives you the explosive edge you’ve always wanted.
With better balance you’ll step when you want to step, move when you want to move and stand your ground when it counts the most. Improved balance and alignment can mean increased accuracy, and a more consistent, centred performance.
Being more agile means staying light on your toes and ready to make your move. Explode from a stand still, stop on a dime and take your game to a whole new level with a little help from AgilityGuard™.
Play longer, run harder and increase your tolerance to take more pain. The pain that comes with being a champion. With help from AgilityGuard™ you may be able to train harder, recover faster and improve your performance where it counts.
We do not have empirical evidence to support enhanced endurance and recovery, but have been told by users that they have found that they have better endurance and recover more quickly. These are areas that we would want to pursue for empirical evidence.
Triumphant has formed a strategic relationship with Dan Ninkovich, founder and owner of BTNL, the World's best hockey training centre. Dan and Drs. Chan and Andary have designed a Hockey AgilityGuard which Dan recommends to all of his hockey players.
AgilityGuard users consistently report increased flexibility, balance, core strength and explosive power. A recent study published by Dr. Shaun Arents and others of Rutgers Univeristy. "Effects of a neuromuscular dentistry- designed mouthguard on muscular endurance and anaerobic power", Comparative Exercise Physiology, Cambridge University Press, 2010, suggests an enhancement in peak power output, performance and repeated maximal efforts by individuals using a mouthguard based on Dr Chan's techniques. Triumphant is looking at pursuing formal research on the potential of the AgilityGuard to improve flexibility, balance, endurance, recovery, core strength and stability among other attributes.
It is important to understand that each individual is different, and that only you can determine whether an AgilityGuard would provide any potential improvement in your athletic performance. This is best determined by you visiting an AgilityGuard dentist nearest you and having him or her perform the Agility Test on you. Only then should you make a decision to purchase an AgilityGuard.
