Ergonomics is the thoughtful design of our personal environment to make it supportive of our bodies and our health. It can be as simple as using good form when lifting, or as complex as designing a jet cockpit for maximum support and utility. In each case, the human being at the center of the activity is the key element. Support the human being and each task will get done with better outcomes for all involved.

These pages include suggestions on how to arrange your world to better support the functioning of the body. In each commentary, the overall concept is to support the forward curves of the neck and low back, and to get the body moving in a balanced and coordinated way. Feel free to ask questions if ideas are not clearly presented, and to make suggestions for other topics you’d like to see covered.
