Ergonomics is the science of posture. We apply this science to your specific environment and activities to evaluate your requirements. The desired outcome is to achieve an understanding of how to minimise stress and strain on your muscles and joints in your chosen activities. The work place is probably the most important environment with regard to postural strain because we spend so much time in a restricted controlled setting. That is why it is so important to get this right. In our free time we also adopt repetitive postures, whether we are using the internet, watching TV on the couch or playing the guitar. Again, prolonged positioning in the wrong posture can be contributing to your lack of spinal and general health.
Finally, when we have time to rest, it is important to achieve maximum relaxation and rejuvenation. Again posture is important in achieving this. And specific postures can help your body to achieve maximum relaxation.
