What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

It's an improved nappy design, aimed to provide busy parents more flexibility and freedom.

A nappy that uses an elastic hoist system of supports and ergonomically designed perimeter seals to capture body movement and contain it in a chute compartment to limit the area that BM comes in contact with the child's skin, ultimately minimising cleanup effort.

there are strategically placed semi rigid bumps and channels that allow flow of BM even while baby may be seated. The key to this invention is it's flexible sealing pad which seats at it's crucial spot and then along the natural curve lines extending to it's anchor points, sealed and supported by progressive matrix of elastic hoists which adjust pressure according to baby's movements or load in the nappy.

not trying to re-invent the wheel, prototypes were constructed by using the same materials of everyday nappys already on the market. in fact all prototypes have been constructed by disassembling, modifying and reassembling to specs as per attached plans.

Although my daughter won't directly communicate that it's comfortable, she didn't show any signs of discomfort while wearing latest designs.

it's simple to use, just as easy as current nappys on the market.

i'm currently looking to purchase a suitable sized 3D model (preferably made of soft material similar to skin) to demonstrate how this works in a video and will upload as soon as ready. The 3D model will also assist me to further fine tune the product by putting the nappy through a series of dynamic test (jumping, running, extra heavy loads, upside down.. etc)

i am aiming to develop this to the point were it can be reliable enough that parents can go out with their child in confidence, armed with just spare nappys and a pack of wet wipes.

No more emergency bathroom bum washes ! wouldn't that be great.

need your help to fund this project. would like to setup a small facility (i have a machine builder contact) and hire enough staff so to efficiently mass produce (within reason and realistic capability of course). the more money i can raise, the more competitive and capable i can be.

Thank you for reading my story.

Risks and challenges

In the event that an existing nappy manufacturer presents a very attractive offer to buy out my invention, then i hereby pledge my promise that all donations will paid back within reasonable ability and possibly with interest if allowable.
