Author(s): Yates JW, Koen TJ, Semenick DM, Kuftinec MM


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.
