  1. 1. Ergonomics at Home : Design for Safe Living and Home Care

    Författare :Jenny Hjalmarson; Tore Johan Larsson; Stefan Lundberg; Lars Nyberg; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ergonomics; aging; work posture; four-wheeled walker; home care worker; living at home; accessibility;

    Sammanfattning : The home should represent safety and security for the person who lives there, and this is an important factor for independence and autonomy in very old age. With aging populations, the needs for long-term care increase, care provided by spouses and/or from the growing home care sector. Injuries among these groups are common. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Ergonomics Infrastructure - An Organizational Roadmap to Improved Production Ergonomics

    Författare :Cecilia Berlin; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Production Ergonomics; Organizational Ergonomics; Organizational Relations; Sociotechnical Systems; Qualitative research; Proactive Ergonomics; Macroergonomics;

    Sammanfattning : Improving production ergonomics is a pursuit common to many companies in different industrial sectors. At the core is an aspiration to eliminate risks for work-related musculo-skeletal disorders (MSDs), but modern views on ergonomics have evolved the discipline from a purely physiological, instrumental concern to an organizational, holistic systems-performance discipline (macroergonomics).
