Phong Hoang Nguyen posted a topic in General education & career related discussionsI'm a Freelance Industrial Designer with a small design house located in Melbourne, Australia. Proposal Summary: The product range was inspired by workplace experience and is designed primarily to manage and reduce the risk of potentially serious accidental injury associated with certain widely used mobility aids, e.g. (walking sticks, crutches, etc.) The market already boasts several products which attempt to address this problem but all fall short of the mark. Focus groups describe these mechanisms as ineffective, situation specific and awkward. The developers have created an inexpensive innovation which all but eliminates the clearly defined risk whilst delivering unprecedented convenience and functionality. Extensive trials involving prototypes, end users, healthcare professionals and the general public have resulted in the full endorsement of both concept and product. After further refinement and quotes concerning tool up and manufacture, the STICK UP now stands ready to serve an accessible and receptive global market. In order to achieve this developers of the product require an investor who will provide up to $150,000. This person will be an active participant in the growth and ultimate success of the project bringing to it appropriate skills and entrepreneurial vision. The investment amount will be used to mass manufacture the product and deliver it to a point of purchase. The amount will also be used to market the product to the public's interest. Our market target range from sport injured individuals to old age and old age carers. Taking into account Australia's and the world ageing population, the potential markets is titanic, globally. Our primary selling markets are pharmacies, rehab/sports injury clinics, age care centres and distributors/ manufacturers of mobility aids equipment nation wide and abroad.
