Human Factors

Human Factors and Ergonomics are about designing for people. Producing good design requires understanding of peoples’ capabilities and limitations and how these vary across the population.

Our work provides a structured, scientific and evidence-based approach to this. Using Human Factors in the design process provides insight into how different people will use or interact with the design solution. It drives design to meet to peoples’ needs rather than forcing them to adapt. Human Factors brings a people-orientated perspective to the design team.
