    My high school offers a pre-engineering program which focuses on preparing students like me to excel in math, science, and engineering careers. As a final project in that program, I am required to find, justify, design, and test a uniquely individual research project. This project, when complete, will be presented at an open night for our engineering program. Because of my rough experiences of trying to hide my back brace, I decided to design and build a new and innovative back brace. The primary purpose of my project is to create a more flexible, comfortable, and concealable back brace for scoliosis.
    For part of the project, we need to conduct market research. So, I was hoping you could take a little time out of your day to fill out a brief survey and share it with former and current brace users you know.
    Thank you,
