X-Porte User Research


The X-Porte User Research project set out to redesign SonoSite’s portable ultrasound machine. The team’s collaborative, holistic approach involved ultrasound stakeholders across global markets. Research found that despite the pressures of a stressful healthcare environment, physicians described an emotional rush of confidence when ultrasound helped them identify and treat a problem. The team anchored its strategy around the concept “surge of confidence.”
