Shock Doctor Support & Braces
Shock Doctor is renowned for research and innovation. The company
consulted with dentists, orthodontists, athletes, parents and their
children in order to produce the “first engineered mouthguard” in 1993.
The mouthguard was quickly adopted by both professional and amateur
In 2002, the original version of the Gel Max mouthguard was launched,
followed rapidly by a guard which could be worn with braces. 2004 saw the introduction of a new product line – core protective
equipment: followed the next year by core protective clothing. In 2011
performance sports therapy equipment and wear was brought into the
product line, followed by a range of recovery compression items,
including compression knit products for the outdoor market.
Today, Shock Doctor sells 12 different patented mouthguards. They offer
the wearer multi-layering and custom gel-fitting. They are extremely
light in weight and are very low profile, allowing the wearer to breathe
and speak easier. They have also excelled in Sports Medical products
such as the 875 Ultra Knee Support.
On 22nd March 2016, Shock Doctor signed NBA All Star
DeMarcus Cousins as a new Athlete Ambassador to promote mouthguard
awareness. "As a center in the NBA, I spend every game fighting
physical battles in the post with some of the largest and strongest
athletes in the world," said Cousins. "Throughout my professional
career, I have always worn a mouthguard, and I am excited to be
partnering with the No. 1 mouthguard company in the world to promote
adoption of this crucial protective equipment."
Shock Doctor also signed 2015 NBA Champion Harrison Barnes. This is the first dual brand ambassadorship between
Shock Doctor and McDavid. “Throughout my college and pro career, I have
competed with some of the fastest, largest and strongest players in the
world,” Barnes said. “I know how important it is to protect yourself on
the court, so I’m excited to be partnering with the leaders in athletic
protection to promote protective gear among basketball players.”
