Hyper-React Senior Thesis

Kids begin sports at a young age. Parents pay a great deal of money to support their child’s exploration in sports. This curiosity leads to children trying and quitting various sports and leaves their parents paying for equipment that may only be used one season. My thesis creates a modular pad system in which the pads are rented and returned each season during this exploration.

The Problem -Parents spend a large amount on their child’s sports activities -The contact sports of Hockey, Football, and Lacrosse are the most expensive due to the large amount of equipment needed -This high cost limits participation and exploration
