In essence, ergonomics is the study of designing equipment and devices that fit the human body and its cognitive abilities. The International Ergonomics Association defines ergonomics or human factors as the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.
