Background
Ergonomics derives from two Greek words: ergon,meaning work, and nomoi, meaning natural laws.Combined they create a word that means the scienceof work and a person’s relationship to that work.In application ergonomics is a discipline focused onmaking products and tasks comfortable and efficientfor the user.Ergonomics is sometimes defined as the science offitting the work to the user instead of forcing the userto fit the work. However this is more a primaryergonomic principle rather than a definition.
