Human Factors in Consumer Products

By Neville Stanton | Go to book overview

the design of the product fits the capabilities of the hands so that comfort, ease and safety of product use are maximised and performance is enhanced. The criteria that have been presented can be used to evaluate the degree to which the design of existing products can be judged to be ergonomic. These criteria should also be used to assist in the development of new products to ensure that the requirements for an ergonomic product are met.
