‘Impact Gumshields’ Sponsor the Pirates

It is always great to witness new technology and how companies use the technology and bring it to life. We are delighted to introduce Impact Gumshields as a sponsor and you will see our players wearing their gumshields with pride during the next three seasons – knowing their teeth are well looked after with the best protection, comfort and fit on the market.

Cornish Pirates’ COO, Robin James, said:

Impact are an Irish company and sponsor many international players and teams in all forms of contact sports. Their gumshields are unique and patented, instead of having a mouth full of putty to take your impression for your custom fit gumshield they 3D scan your mouth and then print your gumshield using a 3D printer. This to me is an amazing advance in technology, however according to their owner James Murphy it’s only the beginning, as in the future their gumshields will have sensors to measure various body metrics to become a smart gumshield.

Quote from Cornish Pirates prop forward Tyler Gendall:

It’s great to have a company like Impact Gumshields on board and I know the players really appreciate it.

Having previously used other branded gumshields, it was apparent not just how quick but more importantly how accurate Impact Gumshields are. I have never experienced the scanning process and the fact the whole process including the scan took less than five minutes made it all the more impressive. You personalise your gumshield with your initials and choose your own colour, which is always a nice touch.

James Murphy for Impact Gumshields commented:

We are delighted to come on board with Cornish Pirates as official suppliers of their custom fit gumshields. The team and community have a real family feel, and we are really excited to be a part of that. Like us, the Pirates are constantly improving themselves, willing to try new and innovative ideas and looking to be the best in their chosen profession. That’s why we feel they are the perfect partners for us and we look forward to working together over the next three years.

The Cornish Pirates wish Impact Gumshields all the very best for the forthcoming season and if any supporters would like a gumshield for either themselves or their children, there are very competitive rates. Please simply enquire through our on-line shop or email Robyn Ashurst: [email protected]
