I must say the Pure Power people might be on to somehting here

Tufts U did a double blind study on jaw positioning in relation to strength and they found a positive relationship
They even ruled out placebo effect

Furthermore they did a test on the MORA, the appliance invented in the 80's and they also found it to be effective

Steroid nation I can see why your site is not too popular

Your background checking is not up to par thus leading you to be an unreliable source of info. WHat happens when they publish a study as the story says later on this year and the results are positive

Are you going to say Rutgers is a HIGH SCHOOL
Dude you will have a credibility problem

cheers

I agree with Fitness Guru!
I have been so addicted to reading about roids and alternatives.
To be honest, i will be getting a PPM so my big thing can stay big and so I don't become small. the gals will love me for it. Joseph Williams, recruit for the Penguins hockey team

The science from this contraption is said to be from a Dr. B Jankelson. His last publication was in 1986, about 22 years ago.

We see no publications on the founder of this PPP, a Dr. Makkar.

If there is a study, reference it. Otherwise the entire thing is bogus. Doubt we will be grinding our teeth at night about this.

Dr. Anil Makkar

I love reading stuff like this on the post.
Everybody is stuck on saying that this maybe bogus.
However , you are not asking the following question: : What if it does work?"
I just got off the phone with one of our professional athletes that uses the PPM , and he is glad to hear that people believe it is bogus, so he can have the edge to himself before people discovery that this really works!
The greatest inventions , always start off with alot of skeptism, and that is okay, because it will change the way that sports will be played!

We have major double blind studies being conducted at this moment, and the results are incredible!
MAtter of fact in one study that was conducted, and which will be published in May of 2008, the athletes did not want to return their appliances, because of the profound effect that they experienced.
I encouarge anyone to try this product, and if it does not amaze you, I will personally have the company refund your investment.

Apparently, you Dr. Makkur do not understand clinical trials. If you wish to make scientific claims, then produce data, not boasts.

We are not interested in your anecdotal marketing literature. We suggest selling peach pits or something else that doesn't require double blind, placebo controlled, cross-over studies.

How does the FDA feel about it:

The FDA encourages organizations such as the ADA to develop voluntary standards for drugs and dental devices. The landmark process of gaining ADA approval of an oral irrigator as the first therapeutic device is described. The process was time consuming and expensive, and obligates the manufacturer to submit all future marketing and advertising claims for ADA review. The ADA should continue to ensure standardized guidelines for all product categories. Education of the dental profession and the consumer concerning the significance of the ADA seal of approval is encouraged.

So where is FDA and ADA positions on this device? Has it been approved?

Here is one actual study:

Effect of a mandibular orthopedic repositioning appliance on muscular strength

J Am Dent Assoc, Vol 108, No 3, 331-333
JW Yates, TJ Koen, DM Semenick, and MM Kuftinec

Three tests of large-muscle group strength were performed on 14 football players from the University of Louisville. Strength tests were performed with no mouthpiece, with a placebo mouthpiece, and with a MORA mouthpiece. A repeated measures ANOVA showed no significant differences between any of the tests, suggesting that the MORA has no effect on muscular strength.

That "Dr. Makkar" sure has a lot of grammatical and spelling errors for a doctor. A

Anyway, I wouldn't rule this out since the PP MouthGuard has hit the local news here in Canada, and reportedly "a huge success".

Fitness Guru

WHy is this idiot comparing the MORA and the Pure Power Mouthguard
That is like saying well a Ford Focus can only go 0 - 60 in 10 secs there for the new Porche 911 sucks as well

The Mora used an ARBITRARY MEthod to set teh individuals BITE
THE PURE POWER MOUTHGUARD INVOLVES EMG ANALYSIS AS WELL AS SOPHISTICATED JAW TRACKING TECHNOLOGY

HELLO MCFLY the More was inveted in teh time of NO cell phones no internet and no BLACKBERRIES
AND THE PILOT STUDIES ARE OUT

SHOCKING THERE IS A DIRECT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEEN BITE EMG SCANS OF TEH FACIAL MUSLE GROUPS AND STRENGTH
A LITTLE KNOW UNIVERSITY CALLED TUFTS DID THE TRIALS

GRG YOU ARE A TYPICAL IDIOT WHO CONDEMNS EVERYTHING BECAUSE YOU PERSONALLY HAVE ACCOMPLISHED LITTLE OR NOTHING AND PROBABLY WORK IN A CUBICLE ANSWERING TO SOMEONE THAT IS EVEN A BIGGER IDIOT THAN YOU

Steroid Nation

Don't we get tired of rants like this? Show us a study. Until then, join the ranks of BSers.

Dr. Makker is on to something, the problem is when he tells NFL players his device will prevent concussions (Carolina Panthers). Furthermore, his idea is not patentable and from what I have learned, is invalid in the U.S.. its cost
$800-$1000 is prohibitive, no parent would pay such a cost. It uses a myometer, a device used to fatigue facial muscles, the process is time consuming and does not evaluate the entire head and neck, only the facial nerves. The Tufts TMJ specialist and doctor linked to the removal of the NFL medical advisor to the NFL in ESPN magazine, is the head and neck specialist of the N.E. Patriots he has an accredited and patented procedure that evaluates these orthopedic structures and plots a course of fitting for each individual. Using MORA principles in part, it achieves the same result as the PPM as far as strength is concerned, yet it puts the athlete in his best physiological position to receive a blow to the jaw. One dentist trained to make it in Massachusetts fits groups of 10 for $185-$250 each. The majority of Patriot players wear the same device, they have had two concussions in the past two years, the Colts over twenty in the same time span. Some players even say it is their secret in the weight room. The doctor has the right idea a higher level of care and understanding is needed in this area, but strength is not the concern, concussion is of epidemic levels. Research and evidence based case studies are needed to sway the public to fund this research, helping prevent concussion should supercede any other concerns, yet the NFL is reluctant to recognize what the medical community has already. www.mahercor.com
