Providing User Insights to VIT Initiative

VIT Initiative: UX Research Assignment (December 2015-January 2016)
Research Methods: Contextual Inquiry, User Interviews


At a small, startup career fair I met the founders of a local hardware startup, VIT Initiative. They set out to attack the massive injury problem companies face in their warehousing operations. To do so, they intended to create a wearable device workers could wear on the warehouse floor to quantify workers lifting behavior and guide them towards better lifting habits. While the founders were mostly hacking away at the technical solutions to the problem, I convinced the two founders to let me do a brief UX Research stint before they got too far in their code and manufacturing. I worked solely with a Giant Eagle warehouse near my school in Pittsburgh, PA to conduct this research.
