MDes / BA (Hons) Product Design
The current design of football goalkeeping equipment is only suitable for players that have an extended knowledge of the game and know how to train effectively. In addition to this, there are an increasing amount of injuries, which could lead to higher number of dropouts within the goalkeeping community.
Equipment Keeper is a multi-use training package, designed to educate and create a safe, fun and interactive way for goalkeepers to train. The use of shock-absorbing materials and safe attachment mechanisms limits the hazards of youth goalkeeping and enables the user to train without fear of preventable injuries. The use of intuitive and easy to follow pictorial instructions means the goalkeeper can train without the need of a coach or even other players – a perfect way to train wherever or whenever.
