Welcome to the Challenge and thanks for sharing your thoughts!
I love how you're pulling in your expertise in skateboarding and applying it to a totally new space so creatively. I wonder if there are visuals you can share to inspire others?
Preventing fractures and falls is certainly a key part of this issue, but there's a big opportunity in helping folks connect their fractures back to the root cause (weak bones due to osteoporosis). Many people could avoid fractures if they knew they had osteoporosis. I wonder how pads and protective gear could be connected back to osteoporosis. When might someone decide to start using these pads? Would they already know they had osteoporosis at that point? Who suggests the pads to them? How might the pads inspire folks to investigate the cause of their fracture or seek treatment?
So many exciting paths to explore here - hope to see you in the Research Phases starting next week!
