What is “Ergonomics”
The term “ergonomics” is derived from the Greek word ergon meaning work, and nomoi meaning natural laws. It is the science of refining product process and tool design to make them easier or safer for human use. Ergonomics is frequently referred to as human factors engineering.
Computer desks and chairs are frequently the focus of ergonomic design. Many people use these products for long periods for work, study or gaming. If these products are not well designed or not flexible enough to adjust to a person’s work style, the user may suffer fatigue, stress, or even injury.
Ergonomics brings the element of human use to the problems of people trying to adjusting to their environment. Ergonomics is a science that helps improve products, processes and tools to help people work and live better while helping prevent injury.
The Risk of Sitting Too Long
Newton’s first law of motion states that a body at rest tends to stay at rest. This law also holds true for the human body. If a person wants to be able to keep moving as they age, they must move more now! And not just as a daily exercise, but ALL DAY!
New studies point to serious health risks from too much sitting. Sitting may seem like a harmless activity (or non-activity), but it has been linked to an increased risk for cancer, heart disease, diabetes and a shortened lifespan.
Here are some statistics from recent studies:

Ergonomics is not a slogan.
The annual cost to U.S. business of lost-time workplace injuries is greater than the gross domestic product (GDP) of 91 countries, according to data from the World Monetary Fund. Workplace MSD (Musculoskeletal Disorders) injuries and accidents that cause employees to miss six or more days of work cost U.S. employers nearly $62 billion in 2013, the most recent year for which statistically valid injury data is available from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and the National Academy of Social Insurance, according to the 2016 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index. That is more than $1billion per week spent on the most disabling, nonfatal workplace injuries.
