ASTM WK37941

    Revision of F697 - 00(2006) Standard Practice for Care and Use of Athletic Mouth Protectors

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F697 - 16

    Developed by Subcommittee: F08.53 | Committee F08 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Recent test data brings into question section 4.2 which speaks to reduction of forces that cause concussions, neck injuries and jaw fractures. So, Section 4.2 should be removed in its entirety, as well as reference 2. Hickey et al. Section 7.1 under cleaning should be expanded to read ... an antimicrobial agent, ozone, UV light is recommended. Section 72. line three ... gypsum ( usually dental stone or high strength stone ) ... is outdated and should be eliminated
