Home remodeling

Today it is often possible to observe how some objects and devices are rejected by consumers, while others that are absolutely similar in functionality and quality, by contrast, are in high demand, including the interior and home remodeling. There is no secret here: It's all in ergonomics.

The objective of this discipline, which name is formed from the Greek "ergon" (work) and nomos (law) is the study and establishment of effective systems controlled by man. In more simple terms, ergonomics designed to make use of the objects surrounding us and the device most convenient and efficient. Thanks to it we've got such wonder-products as a computer mouse, remote control, single lever faucet and sliding door wardrobes. Do not forget to mention mobile phones and cameras, which can be controlled with one hand. All these concepts can be applied to home remodeling as well.

The main object of study of ergonomics is the system "man - subject - environment", so the consumer and the product is considered as part of one unified system, for example, "man - computer" or "man - cleaner". In the process of designing products to meet the requirements of ergonomics are taken into account such factors as the structural features of the human body, his physical strength, ability to perceive information and make decisions, and sometimes even the ability to endure stressful situations. Manufacturers spend a lot of tests to understand how users can access the product in one or another (sometimes even the most hypothetical) situation, and what to include in the product properties based on the anticipated reaction. The task of the seller is to help the buyer choose not just a functional and aesthetically pleasing product, but the most convenient and pleasant to use.
