We get these requests from time to time; always curious how a thesis (MA? MBA? MS?) is written at a company. Or for a company. Companies may be studied, and data collected, but typically your university is where you write your thesis. You know, for your committee and all that? Are you sure you're not just doing some advertising for a start-up? No blame, just odd how the language is always the same.
But I digress. This is kind of a solution waiting for a problem. Unless you're planning to make racing suits or helmets, I assume you mean slalom gear, other events tend not to use strap on plastic. Do you mean for adults or children? In general, shin guards never fit shins, let alone shins under regular ski pants, which is how practice occurs a high % of the time. Ski pole handle guards rarely fit real hands. Haven't seen too many injuries from unwieldy shin or arm guards, but have seen some pole guards that didn't do the job. Most recreational racers or kids below U16 don't wear arm guards.
So all in all, 3D is a great solution, but unclear there's the demand for paying more for easier fitting gear. We already pay for molded-in-China ABS with some cheap foam and velcro at about the same rate as gold. May have hit that inelastic piece of the demand curve. IMO, put your company's efforts into boots - ski and otherwise - and everyone will be worth more when you go public.
