Ergonomics: Human-Centered Design

CUErgo
presents information from research studies and class work by students and faculty in  the Cornell Human Factors and Ergonomics Research Group (CHFERG), directed by Professor Alan Hedge,  in the Department of Design and Environmental Analysis at Cornell University.  CHFERG focuses on ways to enhance usability by improving the ergonomic design of hardware, software, and workplaces, to enhance people's comfort, performance and health in an approach we call  Ergotecture.  We recognize that this is also as an important component of the Department's  Ecotecture sustainable design approach.
