What is Ergonomics?
The engineering science concerned with the physical and psychological relationship between machines and the people who use them. It is the study of designing equipment and devices that fit the human body and its cognitive abilities.

Ergonomics or human factors engineering, a profession of designing machines, tools, and work environments to best accommodate human performance and behavior. It aims to improve the practicality, efficiency, and safety of a person working with a single machine or device (e.g., using a telephone, driving a car, or operating a computer terminal). Taking the user into consideration has probably always been a part of tool design; for example, the scythe, one of the oldest and most efficient human implements, shows a remarkable degree of ergonomic engineering. Examples of common devices that are poorly designed ergonomically include the snow shovel and the computer or typewriter keyboard.
