2016 Innovate Product Awards

 

I want to thank CONNECT and the Panel of Distinguished Judges for this very special entrepreneurial event.  It is an honor and a privilege to be here with such premier cutting edge San Diego product finalists.

  • Introduction DAMPS Technology Footwear (Directional Axial Magnetic Propulsion Systems)

  • We have to really utilize footwear as transportation, not just a logo.  If you don’t please move to the right lane, it’s a hard road out there.  We want to lighten your load.

 

  • Benefits

  • What is Shock Mitigation? Shock Mitigation is the time delay in load force disbursement.

  • We first proved that concept with our first USSOCOM military contact in 2004 and proving it ever since.

  • A person’s heel strikes the ground at 2-3    times their body weight per square inch each and every step. DAMPS reduces heel strike over 68%. That means a warrior, anyone can walk 10 miles and save his or herself the shock of 7 miles. Heel strike shock quickly adds up to tons of pressure on the foot and lower extremities.

  • F-Scan is the leader in pressure surface mapping typically utilized for diabetic patients to monitor pressure points on the foot.

  • Plantar Fasciitis is the painful inflammatory condition of the foot caused by excessive wear and impact to the plantar fascia -   http://www.plantar-fasciitis.org/

  • Heel Strike injury is the number one injury seen by Podiatrists

  • Low back problems are the number                              two cause of employee downtime

  • Shoe companies that claim shock mitigation are selling well, only further proving our superior technology performance market.

 

  • Pricing

  • Reached out to NFL Payers Representative D Maurice Smith  

  • Roger Goodell is very hard to reach.

  • Seven computer simulation models, Ready for 2016 NOCSAE; Drop Testing and Side Impact Ram testing for license introductions.

  • It’s great that the NFL has recognized the problem and is sensor monitoring helmet to helmet player contact from the side lines and there is concussion protocol it is changing the game forever.

  • While a concussion proof helmet is only theoretical, our computer testing demonstrates we can reduce linear and rotation impact force right now.

 

  • Demo MKV Prototype DTI/Outsole and Women’s FITN Prototypes

 

  • Projections in a $65 Billion Footwear Market

 

  • Our product ramp up is 250k pairs year one to 5 million pairs year five, puts DAMPS into nine figure sales in three years.

 

  • While we love and honor our military and it’s warriors, it is not the optimum business model for our ramp up funding.  The military provides a strategic concurrent partnership for our funding efforts, that moves us forward. Investors now it’s our job. We can be miles ahead in ancillary markets, not waiting for politics to clear.
