Ergonomic Breakdown: Comfort Factors  [13]                                                                  iPhone Courtesy of Apple The iPhone really doesn't have many comfort factors. It's not that it is uncomfortable, it's just that cell phones don't have much comfort.
Conclusions… 1) It is important to apply the ergonomics standards to keep a healthy live. We’ll expend a lot of time at work, studying, etc. 2) While Ergonomics is a relative new field of study, it is acquiring relevance worldwide. More companies are applying ergonomics policies. Probably some day will be mandatory 3) We need to think about how are we working, about our postures and habits. It is always a good time to learn and improve.
