Mouthguard protection in contact sports | Dr Keith Winwood – Manchester Metropolitan University

Hello my name is Dr Keith Winwood, I’m Reader in the Department of Life Sciences and Researcher in the
Musculoskeletal Science and Sports Medicine Group. My research group is
interested in the use of mouthguards and how to improve mouthguards and the
technology behind them. We are continuously looking at different
materials, fabricating techniques, and other research to improve personal
protective equipment. There are many different sports that use mouthguards
such as rugby, hockey, boxing, and martial arts. The research that we focus on is
fabricating mouthguards and how we can improve use of compliance and getting
basically more people to wear them.
