Millions of children participate in some sort of organized sport or physical activity every year. Sports related injuries have become common as child athletes push their bodies to the limit where their practice regiment may actually be counter-productive in achieving optimal health. According to the National Center For Sports Safety:

  • Injuries associated with participation in sports and recreational activities account for 21 percent of all traumatic brain injuries among children in the U.S.
  •  Most organized sports related injuries(62 percent) occur during practices rather than games.
  • More than 3.5 million children ages 14 and under receive medical treatment for sports injuries each year

Sports like baseball, basketball, and football are competitive by its nature requiring players at all ages to train intensively in order to compete at a high level. Injuries occur either because the training is not efficient in preparing athletes for the game itself, or, the equipment being used is not adequate in reducing the risk of injury. Sea Systems Group developed the Gator X consumer line of products because we feel that the sports equipment used today can be drastically improved if used with the MitiGator Cushioning System.  Reducing injury while providing comfort is the perfect combination that describes the MitiGator, which can be used in various sport equipment: baseball helmets, football helmets, batting gloves, hockey pads, etc. If you’re a coach or player and you have questions or feedback regarding the MitiGator, please click on the media link below.

According to USA Today, over 3 million teeth are knocked out every year in children who engage in youth sports. Baseball and Basketball are the sports where these injuries occur the most.

The most common injuries are displaced teeth and broken jaws, that if not treated by a dentist or other medical professional within 24 hours, can lead to permanent injury.  Parents are obviously concerned with the well-being of their children who participate in youth sports. The use of proper equipment is important to parents and youth sport coaches who want to protect their players.

A mouth guard made up of the MitiGator Cushioning System developed by Sea System Group can provide adequate mouth protection for children who play youth sports. The MitiGator is a light weight material that is made up of a layer of film that forces air to run through a web of complex channels when force is applied. This allows the material to absorb most of the impact protecting the user in the process.

The MitiGator can be applied to a variety of sports equipment including helmets, gloves, as well as mouth guards. Youth sports are great way for a child to stay activate and make friends.  Using the right equipment will make all the difference between a day out on the field, or an emergency visit to the dentist.
