I wasn't familiar with MORA, so I did a quick search and found this abstract:

Keep us posted on your thoughts Freddy - I'm definitely interested to hear what happens with real life testing.

Yeah, Shock doctor and some of the other OTC mouth gurads say they help with strength. It's called the M.O.R.A (Mandibular Orthopedic Repositioning Appliance)effect. So just make sure is states MORA on the package.

Freddy, we have a dentist who's been studying the mouthguard/strength stuff for a couple of decades. The theory is not so much about the clinching, it's the alignment. Better alignment allows for better firing of muscle fibres, etc.

There is a HUGE difference between a typical mouthguard and one that's fitted for alignment. Arguably a typical mouthguard will make alignment worse, price is in the $1500 range, and to get it aligned you'll spend a lot of time being wired to machines, electrocution, etc.

I've been testing one particular mouthgaurd for about a year. What I can say is flexibility is noticeably better while wearing it. Lifting feels more comfortable, but I haven't noticed any significant difference in strength while wearing VS not wearing. I've talked to other powerlifters about it and the best I've heard (from non sponsored / non marketers) is that you might get 5 reps instead of 4 reps.

Anyway, just my experience, I could be a non-responder.
