Ergonomic Picking

Ergonomics is the practice of designing products and systems that accommodate the physical limitations of the human body.  Ergonomically designed systems are easier and more comfortable to use, reducing the chance people will experience discomfort or injury while using the system.  Ergonomically designed systems also enable people to be more productive.  In this activity students will evaluate the layout of a medical supply cabinet, collect and analyze data, and determine whether a new layout has a better ergonomic design and is more efficient.

Curricular Subjects: 
Collecting, Analyzing, and Comparing Data, Multiplying Whole Numbers, Rounding Decimals, Converting Units of Time, Using Formulas, Calculating Averages, Determining Percent Change
