What Is Ergonomics?

Ergonomists use empirical data from their observations to develop workplace solutions that improve workers’ health, safety, comfort, and productivity.
Ergonomic designs – such as ergonomic office chairs – are human centered, meaning they are built to support the human body. The ergonomic discipline draws from principles in the fields of psychology, anthropometry, biomechanics, and more to accommodate the body’s physical and psychological needs.
Designed to maximize comfort and efficiency at work, an ergonomic chair is equipped with features that cater to the human body. The best ergonomic office chairs have one or more of the following features:
