month on January 2nd, our son Conor injured his face in a basketball game,
fracturing his upper jaw, breaking teeth, losing teeth, and in general did a
lot of damage. At the hospital his first question was, "When can I go back and
play?" At that time we all doubted whether he could return this season. Being a
senior in high school, this was a devastating thought. Even one of the local
papers, called it "a possible season ending injury". I immediately started
researching face masks online and found your website along with some others.
The orthotic facilities near our home all said they could make a mask for him,
but they did not have the experience you have and I did not have confidence
that they would do the job we needed. Within 3 weeks, Conor was back on the court.
His adjustment to the mask you made was short and he is back to playing the
game like nothing ever happened. The fit is perfect and he plays like he is wearing
nothing at all. Thank you for your quick turnaround, being there to answer any
questions and for doing such a wonderful job for Conor, enabling him to finish out
his last season in high school. They start the playoffs on Friday and he is as
ready as ever w/ the wonderful mask you made!
