Shoes and Boots

Postby lisamariea » Thu Jul 21, 2011 9:32 pm

Hi everyone! My name is Lisamarie. I am a student in Canada interested in product development for children with disabilities. I am currently working with a team of nine other students to commercialize an easier-to-put-on boot geared primarily toward children with agility disabilities. In particular, we are looking to help children with cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis. If you have had any difficulties helping your child put on boots, please share your experiences. Would your child benefit from shoes or boots that could be put on independently? What is the maximum price you would be willing to spend on a pair of boots? Thanks so much!
