The Ergonomics Laboratory (known as the Ergo Lab by students) is used for undergraduate and graduate teaching. The laboratory also provides the facilities and equipment for the students and faculty to conduct research on the physical, physiological, and psychological capability of people with respect to the characteristics of operational tasks that they perform.
The research projects conducted in the Ergonomics Laboratory have included the biomechanical impact of one-versus-two person lifting, the effect of knife and scissors sharpening techniques on musculoskeletal disorders of the wrist, and modeling the impact of active safety devices on driver workload and performance.
