Ergonomics

 

Ergonomics is concerned with the relation or the 'fit'

between the product and the user. It contributes to

designing the "interface" between person and product. This

includes both adaptation to the human body as well as to

his mental capabilities.

Knowledge about perception, learning and

understanding, recognition and cognition are at the core of

the mental dimension of ergonomics. Anthropometry

(distribution of body dimensions in the population as basis

for optimising products) forms the basis for the physical

dimension of ergonomics.

Ergonomic aspects are those deduced from anything

connected to human behaviour: that includes physical

characteristics and abilities (e. g. possibilities to move,

skilfulness, capacities), mental capabilities (information

reception, processing, and transfer, logical and creative

thinking), and individual conditions (state of health,

education, experience, and culture).
