Innovative ergonomics

One of the major causes of difficulties in the transfer of ergonomic data into design practice is that until now there has been little connection between ergonomics research and design, particularly in the areas of the search for solutions and innovation. We are thus studying the contribution of prospective ergonomic methods and knowledge into the early phases of product design, in the phases of understanding the question, formulation of requirements, and the search for solutions. These studies include evaluation techniques for existing products and human-product relationships, and also simulation techniques. This approach understands ergonomics not as relating to the product as such, but to the process of interaction between human and product, and is aimed to develop a systematic approach to design.
