In 2008, we presented our security "high-tech" individual extra-light device mask (SHIELD), a protective shield based on the face cast of an injured soccer player that can be customised. It allows a shortened convalescent period, is comfortable, fits well, and allows the patient to continue to play at a professional level in their chosen sport or activity in the shortest time possible. It has been used often in both amateur and professional categories of many sports, and we now present an update.
