Successful product design focuses on the needs and often the desires of the user. A product’s design works best when there is a good fit between the needs and capabilities of the user and the form and function of the product.
Ergonomie’s knowledge of human behaviour, cognition, biomechanics and anthropometry allows us to support design teams in the development of new concepts or re-design of existing products.
We adopt a user-centred approach combined with scientific human factors techniques to design products or interfaces that minimise errors, improve efficiency and create a more pleasurable experience for the user.
We specialise in the design of equipment and products for a broad range of industries, and have experience in the support of product design projects in the following areas:
- consumer products
- interface design
- equipment design
- specialist medical products
- workplace products
Our approach to product design includes:
- establishing user profiles
- determining users goals and expectations through workshops, focus groups and observation
- heuristic evaluation and expert appraisal
- application of practical evaluation and scientific literature and standards
- user testing during prototype development to evaluate and develop interface designs
