Each month, we interview a human factors expert to get their take on the Human Factors and User Experience industry. In this month’s installment, we sat down with Chris Rockwell, President of Lextant, a leading user experience firm based in Columbus, OH (and a good partner of Research Collective).
Question: Let’s jump right in…How would you describe the relationship between human factors and market research?
Answer: There is a lot of confusion and territorial behavior around this question.
We’re excited to welcome a returning client this month…
Nippon Research Corporation (NRC) and their client, a large medical device manufacturer, are returning for to complete a formative study for another study revolving around endoscope device reprocessing. Our team is recruiting qualified endoscopy technicians and will moderate the one-on-one evaluation sessions. Later in the fall, we will recruit and facilitate the follow-up validation study as part of their FDA 510(k) submission.
