Special Considerations for the Medical Environment:

• Computer workstation ergonomics

• Precision and lab work ergonomics

• Efficiency of reception and waiting areas

• Environmental accessibility and signage

• Lighting

• Sound mitigation for patient privacy

• Safe patient handling

• Environmental design
 

With so many potential negative effects for doctors and patients, it is critical that the implementation of new technology is considered from a design and ergonomics perspective.

Equipped with the latest technology, medical professionals are believed to be more efficient and reliable than ever. While this technology has made certain tasks more efficient, new studies are showcasing the consequences of under-researching and understanding the ergonomics of certain medical technology. 

According to research conducted by Alan Hedge, a professor of human factors and ergonomics in Cornell's College of Human Ecology's Department of Design and Environmental Analysis, poor office layouts and continually improper use of digital devices may result in repetitive strain injuries among doctors and nurses. Hedge's results indicate that commonly reported injuries, including repetitive strain to the neck, shoulder, and upper and lower back, could be better understood, and even avoided altogether with the proper implementation of an ergonomics consultation. 

Hedge also reports that the use of computers and similar technology has increased for the medical profession over the past year, but only 5% of the 200 respondents felt that they had an expert knowledge of ergonomics, and two-thirds reported that they had no input in the planning or design of their station. However, allowing personalization in the medical offices can boost staff performance, engagement, and is shown to have an overall positive effect.
