HOW IT WORKS

Built with purpose and backed by science - AIRWAAV delivers unparalleled benefits, all of which are supported by over 15-years of peer-reviewed, published research.

INCREASE STRENGTH

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.

INCREASE ENDURANCE

When you gently clench on the bite plate and direct your tongue down and forward under the front intake bar, AIRWAAV causes a reflex in the body that opens the airway and reduces respiratory rate by up to 20%, resulting in less lactic acid production and lower perceived exertion during high intensity exercise.

FASTER RECOVERY

AIRWAAV is scientifically proven to reduce cortisol production post-workout by up to 50%, which has been shown to speed up recovery times for athletes.

CHAMPIONED BY THE BEST IN THE GAME

What we learned about AIRWAAV with our athletes wearing it is it gives you that extra 1% where you can sustain, you can recover better and so with this product you can get that competitive edge to keep you going.

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm a first-time user, what should I know?
Down Carrot Icon
Like most things the AIRWAAV™ Performance Mouthpiece (device) will take some time to get used to. After molding we suggest getting used to your mouth and body used to the device by using it in a “shorter” workout. That could be a short HIIT workout or even a shorter run. The device is made of a special material that can be remolded but we’ve found after a few (three to five) wears/uses the body will get used to the device and it will fit perfectly.
Which model is right for me?
Down Carrot Icon
AIRWAAV offers two versions: HIIT and Endurance. Both versions provide the same benefits, but they differ in fit and usage.

  • HIIT Mouthpiece: Offers a relaxed fit that rests on top of the lower teeth. Users will see minimal bite marks as this version does not impress to the teeth (hence the relaxed fit). To customize the fit, you can heat it up in the microwave and leave it in your mouth for 2 minutes.
  • Endurance Mouthpiece: Offers a tight and snug fit. It features a gummy material designed for biting during lifts. The patented material will shrink once it cools, creating a custom, locked down fit. To achieve the perfect fit, heat it up in the microwave and bite down firmly, leaving it in for 3-5 minutes.
How does it work?
Down Carrot Icon
AIRWAAV operates on a simple yet ingenious principle: optimal jaw alignment. By directing your tongue down and forward, this mouthpiece gently widens your airway while simultaneously igniting cortical brain function. The result? A game-changing enhancement to your performance.
How should it fit in my mouth?
Down Carrot Icon
AIRWAAV® is a lower fitting mouthpiece that fits on your lower teeth. The intake bar fits inside of your lower teeth to help direct the tongue down and forward.
What should I be looking for when using AIRWAAV® to know if it's working?
Down Carrot Icon
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.
Will this protect my teeth?
Down Carrot Icon
AIRWAAV® Performance Mouthpiece (device) is built to support your training no matter what sport you’re playing. However, it is NOT built/constructed in any way to protect your teeth during contact sports. So if you’re playing a contact sport please do not use AIRWAAV® to project your teeth. But if you’re competing in an event that is a non-contact sport we highly recommend you use the device in both your training and competition.
How do I mold an AIRWAAV?
Down Carrot Icon
A “How-to” video and fitting device are available on the AIRWAAV® website. A microwave is the recommended method for fitting.
Do you have published research?
Down Carrot Icon
Absolutely! In fact, we have peer-reviewed, published research. Visit airwaav.com to review the studies or feel free to email customerservice@airwaav.com with any questions.
How is it different from others on the market?
Down Carrot Icon
The AIRWAAV™ Performance Mouthpiece is backed by 15 years of research and development including peer-reviewed published articles about its efficacy. It is patented and is different from every other device because it’s built to support both your strength and conditioning work. In addition to supporting both strength and conditioning work AIRWAAV® supports your recovery by reducing extra strain on the body (lower BPM) and by lowering cortisol levels.
Can I trim the edges of Airwaav to make it fit better?
Down Carrot Icon
Yes, that should be fine, for people with smaller mouths, we recommend trimming the ends of the mouthpiece.
