An intro to ergonomicsHave you ever thought "ugh, this chair is way too uncomfortable." or "The way they designed this controller makes my arms feel very weird."? And you think "I wish they could make a better version of this." Well, some objects that people make are uncomfortable to use, so there are people who improve their design to make them more comfortable. These people are called "ergonomists". They look at things such as a basic plastic chair, and find ways to reduce the stress it causes on your body, because as you all know, those little plastic chairs can be very uncomfortable. Ergonomists have made much more comfortable chairs, as seen below. Here is a short video on good ergonomic positions.
