Sometimes products and systems we have no choice but to use on a daily basis may not be designed with our health and wellness in mind. That's basically what ergonomics tends to attempt to address.
Ergonomics has to do with a scientific discipline that is concerned with understanding interactions which occur between people and these additional elements that make up a system. Ergonomics might also be considered a profession which applies principles, methods, theories, and data, taking all of these elements into consideration, then designing products and systems that optimize your well-being -- not to mention overall system performance as a whole.
Ergonomics Can Help You At Work
There are all sorts of work-related stress and injuries that can occur, which ergonomics attempt to address, ultimately helping reduce your chances of falling victim to tissue or skeletal damage, not to mention overuse and repetitive motion.
