Dentist Dr Lyndon Meehan was under as much pressure as the Wales rugby team when he was asked to provide them with an unbranded versions of their mouthguards.
Lyndon is a GDP working between hospital and general practice dentistry with a special interest in Sports Dentistry being club dentist for Cardiff City FC and Pontypridd RFC – and also provides Under Armour Performance Mouthwear for the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) team.
With tight restrictions on advertising in the Rugby World Cup 2011, the whole WRU squad were in need of brand new, logo-free mouthwear, fast.
Dr Meehan says: ‘The whole team were happy with their UAPM but the logo rendered them illegal for the World Cup.
‘With only a week or two before they had to fly out, I had to redo the impressions to generate individually tailored mouthwear without the branding.
‘Together with Bite Tech, who supplied the UAPM, and distributor Nuview, we were able to get the job done in time.
‘The team uses upper UAPM for games and the lower mouthpiece for training, with noticeable improvements in results and strength.
‘UAPM is a very exciting product with so much supporting research and has given me another string to my bow.’
