Why is ergonomics important

Apart from home, where do people spend most of their time while being awake? The answer is, at work. Research shows that the average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime. As humans increasingly rely on technological applications to accomplish work, how we can access work essentials more easily has interested many people. Besides, more people pay attention to how well the working and living environment can be arranged to facilitate well-being, interaction and collaboration. These trends have encouraged furniture designers and engineers to provide solutions and to develop practical products and designs to improve how we live, work, and rest. One of the attempts is to design and innovate products with ergonomics in mind.
