Technical and Clinical Feasibility
Creating the device should not be too complicated as there are already similar products on the market that are relatively cheap and easy to construct. The technologies needed for this product include the following: pressure sensors, gel pads, bluetooth/wireless charger, microprocessor, foam and mesh covering. There would not be many challenges or things to go wrong since we know the materials and methods to build the insole. The only challenge is that the insoles change slightly from user to user in regards to shaping the insole to their foot and their needs. However, it should not be too hard to get the correct measurements to provide the best fit and comfort for everybody.
Our product will have no problem in clinic since other similar products have already gone through and have been cleared and no longer have any problems. There have been many other products that have been in a clinical trial. During the trials, patients implant insoles into their shoes and then their data was wirelessly communicated to a smart watch or app where the patient could see their feedback and track their progress over time. Previous clinical trials have varied from a time range between five weeks and six months.

Our current fundability score is 144 which shows that our product needs to be improved for it to be funded. Although our product is not high, we are continuing to do more research about the products that are currently on the market and how well they are producing and selling. The problem with the product is that it is not something that can save someone’s life and therefore many people many not look into buying the product, especially if it is marketed at a high price. However, if people are able to see a difference with their lifestyle and they are provided with more comfort when engaging in activities such as walking or running, it can be provide a major change in the users life.
