We are innovators driven by technology AKA changemakers
The SenseIT team came together around a shared mission to enable an inclusive digital world. Members of our team were manual testers and accessibility consultants for enterprise companies. We experienced a common trend with our clients; accessibility was almost always an afterthought. Assessing and fixing web apps for accessibility post-production was tedious, time consuming and expensive for our clients.
SenseIT is revolutionizing digital accessibility assessments by introducing an automated platform that performs usability tests directly from your user interface.
If you are passionate about accessibility or you are interested in joining the conversation, drop us a line.
SenseIT was founded by accessibility professionals and software engineers with a mutual goal: to make accessibility accessible for the development cycle.

Co-Founder and CPO
“Equal opportunity for all,” is not just something Nadav Bernstein says, it is what he does.
Social entrepreneurship was Nadav’s calling before it was fashionable. The epiphany to combine volunteering and work to better society came when at age 19 he volunteered and researched the needs of society and how different groups deal with their circumstances. This likely led him to pursue degrees in Psychology and Organizational Psychology and to utilize his skills and passion as a Solutions Developer and Executer at architectural, consulting, and subcontracting firms focusing on making spaces and services accessible. The firms assisted private and public companies including the Israel office on Sprots Culture and an international hotel/hospitality chain. Nadav manually tested and made websites accessible for clients at the international ad agency, McCann Erickson. Standardizing corporate accessibility solutions segued into accessibility in the digital space and now automating the testing and integration processes at SenseIT.
In his spare time Nadav has taken up running. Inclusivity, like running, is a long, hard, but satisfying, journey.

We are glad to have this superhero on our team.

Music, cooking, knitting, fabric crafting, coding and language are all based in the creative application of patterns and amongst Gilia Sacharow’s interests and talents.
