Ergonomics is a form of assistive technology which simply means the study of people and their working conditions. It is the broad term used for designing objects to correct posture or adapt to the shape of the human body.
Ergonomic products can help correct poor posture and can cover anything from an alternative mouse device to an ergonomic chair. They can also support individuals with a disability who need a different way of working. For example, a height adjustable desk is designed to support individuals with injuries and those who experience pain whilst working.
Individuals who may require ergonomic equipment include university students who carry out work at home. Without a supportive chair and desk, they will often experience pain and discomfort in their working environment. Employees in the workplace also often require ergonomic desks and chairs to help make working life more comfortable.
