Human Factors:  The connection between the product and the user

The term human factors encompasses a variety of man to machine interface elements. Some of the work is physical where we craft the design to fit the users body size, kinematic capabilities and strength. Other work deals with the cognitive ability of the user to understand how to use a product, user interface design and menus. And finally there is organizational design where the product and the entire work structure is studied and optimized.

In the example shown above, we're setting the anthropometic parameters for a medication delivery cart design project.
