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 athletes alike.
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.”
