George Garbis DDS
The ThermoPact MouthShield is the brainchild of a dentist and football coach who teamed up to develop an athletic mouthguard to protect athletes in two critical ways: preventing impact-related mouth injuries and serving as an early warning indicator of heat-related trauma. Dr. George Garbis and Viron Wildy partnered with a range of experts—including a ballistics company and an experienced medical equipment engineer—to research, design, test and produce a uniquely effective MouthShield that will draw attention to the dangers of heat-related injuries while protecting teeth and jaws.
ThermoPact MouthShield’s unique triple-layer design and patent-pending foam insert absorbs more impact energy than the leading over-the-counter, boil-and-bite mouthguard, providing extra protection for teeth and jaws. The mouthguard also features patent-pending Thermo-Technology material, which changes color when an athlete’s oral temperature reaches 102°. This unique feature will enable coaches, trainers, parents, and athletes to head off and hopefully avoid heat-related dangers.
