What is Ergonomics?

Ergonomics is the application of the physical sciences such as anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology (study of movement) with social sciences like psychology to the world of product design and efficient work process. Good ergonomic design should always enhance productivity while safeguarding the well-being of the employee or consumer.

For instance have you noticed how easy it is to navigate this website from both a physical and cognitive perspective? Or our choice of background colour to decrease visual irritation? Perhaps the text font and colour against the background to facilitate visual perception? Finally the conscious decision to use illustration to enhance visual appeal and end-user enjoyment? All of these features are great examples of ergonomic design both in planning and execution that enhance a product and/or some work or leisure process.
