So far on the SEAS Design team we have completed our memorandum for our foot insole, and we have been working hard on our deliverable 2- design proposal. Our main time has been spent just recently finishing our memorandum, but in starting out the design proposal we have been researching google patents, and determining specific regulations for our design. A big aspect that is most important to the group at this point has been trying to research as much as possible and gaining as much information about:
- Other foot insoles out there
- Medical regulations
- Types of material out there
- Ways to make this a versatile products and one of a kind
- Pricing/Availability to people
Since Researching there have been expected results that are well known like Dr. Scholl’s insoles but there have also been other unexpected and different types of foot supports that we have never even hear of like types of slings, or heel cups. As far as regulations go were seeing that like when you buy shoes your sizes may vary, we are looking into how we would size our foot insole as well. There are pictures below of our findings and a large view of our memorandum. Plus our official SEAS Design logo is coming soon so keep an eye out for it!
