What is ergonomics?

I have heard of ergonomics as a factor to consider in typing practice and what is that supposed to mean?

Hi! Ergonomics is actually a science that involves creating workplace conditions that reduce a worker’s risk of developing health problems. Anyone who types for long periods of time, whether for work or for pleasure, could be at increased risk for these kinds of problems. The risk level varies depending upon an individual’s intensity of repetitive exertions, their duration, and the amount of exposure to those exertions. Creating an ergonomically correct work space can lower that risk, and it can also increase comfort. Take the steps to make your workspace a healthy one, and you’ll improve both your typing skills and your productivity.
