What Are the Key Principles of Ergonomics?

The key principles of ergonomics include:

  • Designing tasks, tools, and equipment to fit the capabilities and limitations of the human body.
  • Maintaining neutral postures to minimize strain on muscles, tendons, and joints.
  • Providing adequate support and adjustability to accommodate different body sizes and preferences.
  • Reducing repetitive motions and excessive force to prevent overuse injuries.
  • Promoting proper body mechanics and movement patterns to minimize the risk of musculoskeletal disorders.
