The makers of an innovative dental mouthguard claim that the product can help athletes excel further by improving jaw alignment.
According to Pure Power Edge, ensuring the jaw is in its optimal position can improve a person's flexibility, strength, balance and endurance, Dentistry.co.uk reports.
It says that once the brain does not have to concentrate on aligning the jaw, its energy can instead be directed on other parts of the body.
Dentists fit each individual for the mouthguard by using electronic pulses to relax their bite and ease their muscles into a resting posture.
St Louis Rams football player Josh Brown told the Florida Times-Union the mouthguard has enhanced his performance.
"You really notice a major difference in your longevity, energy and focus," he commented, adding that he feels less physical fatigue when he wears it during a game.
Pure Power Edge is currently available in Canada, the U.S., Australia and Singapore.
