Direct Link To This Post Topic: Questions for a new Stomp Pad Design:New Survey!
    Posted: Mar/24/2011 at 10:26am
Hi guys, I'm a student from Lehigh University, and I'm working on a semester design project, and we chose to look at stomp pads. However we do not know too much about what people think of stomp pads. If you could fill out our short and simple survey to learn more about what people think, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for time!

Problem is the guy in our group who posted it, literally could not find the thread, couldn't even remember what he put the topic as. Did not mean for it to look as a double post, my bad to those who think so.

By the way here's our concept design, well more of a picture. Anything is changeable but was wondering what you guys think of the idea. We haven't decided on what we're going to use for traction, spikes or something else. So the clear oval section is the meat of the actual stomp pad, does not move just acts as a regular stomp pad. The red section however, is what actually differentiates us from the others. Its going to act as a switch/lever mechanism that when pressed upon, with the foot, causes the metal or plastic hoop, not set in stone, to swing up and over the boot. This way when you're skating you can have more control, or when you're on a lift have a way to rest your board. While I understand this is similar to the strap pad, we're eliminating the visual assault of the black strap that cannot be hidden.
The image is on the site we use to store our group docs and such.


Feedback is appreciated as is taking the survey.

We are asking for email is because after we settle on a design, we'd like to send out another survey evaluating that design. We figured that those who took the time to do the first survey probably wouldn't mind it too much if we asked them to take a more detailed one later on.

Yeah, surveymonkey only allows for 10 questions a free survey, else we would have added more.
And yes, we will be making a prototype for the project, maybe in a few weeks.

It seems like the loop will need to be much larger if it is going to be able to pop out over a snowboard boot. Also maybe the switch might work better if it were on the opposite side? that way while attempting to step on the switch you're not inadvertantly holding the loop down.

I was thinking the exact same thing about the switch. Should definitely be located towards the heelside.

the design concept is ok l guess, but let say you get off a lift, how would you manage to loop the string or whatever onto your boots, because thats basically the only time you would use the stomp pad, to get off the lift

that thing is Fugly lol. Plus for someone to actually need/have the desire to buy that over a traditional (and cheaper to manufacture/sell) stomp pad it's going to be a pretty small market (people who can't get off ski-lifts for the life of them no matter how much they practice)
I'd say it's cool idea for a college project or if you were just making a few for friends who fit the above group or something, but I wouldn't actually try to sell them if you're looking for a profit.

I think you’re going against the K.I.S.S. principle here (keep it simple stupid). The strap pad design, as you mention, basically does the same thing. You just slide your boot in the strap right before you get off the lift, no mechanics. It’s intended for beginners and costs about $20.

If it's the black strap that you have issues with, I would think you'd be able to mask it a little better simply by using an alternative material. Maybe a clear plastic of some kind?

Personally I think everyone should just take their lumps like I had to. I just finally mastered the chair lift this season, with a little help from the people on this site I should add.

We finally were able to get a 100 responses to our survey, thanks to all who answered!
However that's the limit of responses on a free surveymonkey account, so later today I'll be posting up a new survey, one that's targets our team design, built around your responses. It'll be up around 7/8 pm eastern tonight. Again, thanks to everybody who's answered so far, and we'd be glad if you could take another few minutes to answer our second survey.

EDIT: Survey will be ready tommorow.

The project encompass the design of the product, creating a marketing plan, and financial planning. Currently the product is for the project alone, but if we find that there is a market for this we may think about continuing it.

So the second survey is ready to go. Again we greatly appreciate your help and time in taking this survey.
