First Sentence
In the bygone millennia our ancestors lived in an essentially "natural" environment in which their existence virtually depended on what they could do directly with their hands (as in obtaining food) and with their feet (as in chasing prey, getting to food sources, and escaping from predators). Read the first page

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

The work by Sanders et al remains perhaps the best single work available on ergonomics. It covers all the main areas of human factors, or the interaction of Man and machine, including visual displays, cognition, reaction speeds, anthropometry and statistics, and organisation and management of the workplace. There is an especially valuable chapter on hand tools, an area where ergonomics has improved some tools beyond recognition, especially screwdrivers (with specially shaped handles for example) and power tools. It deals in depth with the problem of maximising user force applied to a tool, while relieving stress on the hand, wrist and arm. This is a vital area of physiology because continuous tool users can suffer repetitive fatigue as well as white finger, carpel tunnel syndrome with poorly designed tools. However, the book is now looking rather dated, as other reviewers have noted, and a revised edition is now needed urgently, especially for computer controlled machines, and the plethora of personal computers, pads and notebooks.
