HOW DOES IT WORK?
AIRWAAV is backed by over 15 years of peer-reviewed, published research to provide baseball and softball players game-changing performance results on and off the field.
INCREASED BAT SPEED
Concurrent activation from clenching accelerates neuromuscular response and increases bat speed by 5.8%.
AIRWAAV's patented bite plate ensures full tooth contact and aligns the jaw, which inhibits neuronal overexertion and reduces the body's natural tendency to limit muscle use. The result is an increase in muscular force when the mouthpiece is in.
AIRWAAV opens the airway to reduce respiratory rate by up to 20%, resulting in less lactic acid production and lower perceived exertion during high intensity exercise.
AIRWAAV reduces cortisol build-up by up to 50% after intense exercise, which has been shown to improve recovery for athletes.
A PERFORMANCE MOUTHPIECE DESIGNED FOR THE DIAMOND
AIRWAAV is a lower fit mouthpiece that sits on your bottom teeth and helps position your jaw and tongue in the optimal position. When AIRWAAV is in, you will experience improved strength, endurance, and breathing benefits – allowing you to perform at your full potential on the field and in the gym.
The AIRWAAV HIIT Performance Mouthpiece is designed with an open bite channel and thin side walls. The design is ideal for athletes who prefer a relaxed fit during the game or in training.
HOW TO USE AIRWAAV
1. Place the AIRWAAV mouthpiece on lower teeth and gently bite down on the bite plate. Clenching will place the jaw in the optimal position and will activate neuromuscular response for improved overall output.
2. Move tongue forward, placing it under the front intake bar on the inside of your lower teeth. Placing the tongue in this position along with your tongue's reaction to the material on the inside of your molars causes the tongue to flex, opening the airway and improving O2/CO2 exchange.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece will take some time to get used to. During the first week we suggest getting your mouth and body used to the device by having it in during low intensity activity. Gradually work it into more intense activity as your become more comfortable with the mouthpiece.
Breathing/Respiratory Rate: The mouthpiece gets fitted and sits on your lower teeth, optimally positioning your jaw and giving you a place to tuck your tongue. When your tongue is down & forward under the red bar, your body has a reflex and will naturally widen your airway opening by up to 25% - allowing for more oxygen each time you take a breath, lowering your respiratory rate. This also lowers your body’s perceived rate of exertion, so you do not feel like you are working as hard.
Cortisol Reduction: When the mouthpiece is in and making contact with your, your trigeminal nerves are activated and sends more blood flow to the brain. This increase in blood flow is what causes the cortisol levels to significantly drop after workouts.
The mouthpiece should be fitted to your lower teeth. The intake bar (the
bar across the front of the mouthpiece) must sit behind your bottom front teeth, and in order to get the optimal positioning your tongue needs to sit underneath the intake bar.
Every person's anatomy is different and will experience AIRWAAV
differently. Simply put, you should feel more efficient. You'll get the same or better results with less effort.
While we do not recommend AIRWAAV for contact sports, it will protect your teeth when clenching during strenuous lifts or activities.
Yes, that should be fine.
All it takes is a microwave, water, and some paper towels. AIRWAAV HIIT requires 60 seconds and AIRWAAV END requires 90 seconds. Fitting instructions are included with each purchase and we have a fitting video on YouTube.
AIRWAAV is made with a patented material called vistamaxx. This material will shrink 24 hours after the initial molding to provide an even better fit.
If for some reason you notice the molding is incorrect, you can remold your AIRWAAV using the same process.
