Ergonomics Lab

​​Many systems can be made more efficient by designing them to fit human characteristics. Our research focuses on designing interfaces, products, tools, workstations, and jobs by examining human behavior, performance, and physical capacity. The work in physical ergonomics involves redesigning tasks for patient handling to reduce the risk of injury to nurses; and in cognitive ergonomics, we are considering factors that affect the attention and performance of medical personnel in an operating room. Our ultimate goal is to make the human more comfortable, efficient, less prone to error and injury, and able to deliver with quality.​
