Ergonomics 2

1) Ergonomics is the study of people's efficiency in their working environment.

2) The five aspects of ergonomics are:
- comfort
- ease of use
- productivity/performance
- safety
- aesthetics

3) Comfort: Massage chairs massage the
elderly for their comfort.

Ease of use: Some handphones have larger words and larger keys so the elderly can see better.

Productivity/performance: Positions of items the elderly normally use should be placed strategically so it will help them do their tasks more quickly.

Safety: There are handrails for most stairs and toilets for the elderly to hold on to in case they fall.

Aesthetics: Signs that are bigger, brighter, and clearer so the elderly can read them.
