Abstract:

This article provides a brief history of the field of ergonomics and explores the interrelationship between health care and ergonomic professions. Health care practitioners contribute a unique perspective to an ergonomic research and intervention team. This singular perspective is based on knowledge of health issues, disease and injury etiology and prognosis, and the psychosocial impact of illness. Topics for collaboration between health care practitioners and ergonomists are identified.
