Ergonomics is concerned with designing objects and spaces for maximum utility by the people who use them. This program provides a thorough overview as it explores the history of ergonomics; discusses the key ergonomic principles of safety, comfort, ease of use, productivity and performance, and aesthetics; and presents a variety of specific examples of ergonomics in everyday life, including a vegetable peeler, an adjustable car seat, the Rotasole sports shoe, architect Steven Last's "The Last Beach House," and a shopping mall. The evolution of ergonomics, with its growing emphasis on how user-centered design and manufacturing impact the natural environment, is considered as well.
