Details

Ergonomic design is an applicative part of ergonomics, which deals with the adjustment and adaptation of design solutions for various objects and systems according to the user’s needs, such as technical products or other products for daily use. The application of ergonomics in product design contributes to the creation of new solutions that are comfortable, safe, efficient, and which contribute to the satisfaction of customers. In this book, certain topics that were not previously treated from the ergonomic aspect are represented. In this regard, topics related to the ergonomic design of certain furniture elements and traffic route evaluation can be pointed out. For the first time collectively, the interdependence of ergonomics, safety and aesthetics in relation to the design of consumer products and certain systems are considered. Also, the original method for assessing the comfort of bus interiors that are intended for the public transport of passengers is also presented. In the larger part of the publication, the emphasis is on the original approach in solving various problems of ergonomic design as well as the evaluation of products and systems. Although this publication retains an academic agenda, special attention is devoted to the applicability of the publication in terms of its accessibility and understandability for the general population.
