Ergonomics is not just about the evolving trend of mouse mats and keyboards with more support for wrists or chairs that are kind to your back, although they certainly fall under the subject. Ergonomics is a complete science. It is defined as the science of designing user interaction with equipment and workplaces to fit the user. In its simpler form, it is product design that takes into account both comfort and efficiency for the end user.
It covers everything from office furniture, to transport, to mobile phones to kitchen utensils. Problems arise when designers do not consider the end user but design a product for product’s sake or consider looks over purpose. Our products are ‘ergonomic’ because they are created with the end user specifically in mind.
Our LCD monitor arms, for example, take into account your back and shoulders and can be adjusted for ideal viewing distances and viewing angles, they also happen to be beautifully crafted. So next time you put your feet up on an office foot rest – it’s not just about better posture – it’s about better science.
