Engineering Project, Please Help

Hello everybody. I'm new here, but here goes...

I am currently a student at Sidney Central School District, a small high school in New York. I'm part of a national senior capstone pre-engineering course and me and my team are currently working on creating a way to improve comfort and prevent injury in ski boots. Over the past three months we have identified problems, brainstormed solutions, and created our initial design concepts.

At this part in the design process it is vital that we get feedback from the consumer about our initial designs. Because of this I have come here to Alpine Zone. On behalf of my team, I come to you for help in the next stage which is to get direct feedback from the consumer.

If it is not too much to ask, please take some time out of your day and fill out these brief surveys. Also, please keep in mind that we are just high school students. Positive constructive criticism would be appreciated.

This is our survey to identify that there is a problem:


This is our survey regarding initial concept designs:


Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
