Most people haven't heard of the science of ergonomics, and many of them will think it only applies to office workstation. In fact what is ergonomics?
“Ergonomics” comes from the Greek words érgo, which means work, and nómoi, which means laws. So may think it only applies to work, but it has a much wider application as it doesn’t only “work” at work, you may also need it at home since home office is becoming a trend.

The International Ergonomics Association (IEA) defined ergonomics (human factors) as the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design with a result of optimising human well-being and overall system performance".Ergonomics helps harmonize things that interact with people in terms of people's needs, abilities and limitations.
In essence, ergonomics is making sure that you have the correct posture, and that your equipment (such as your desk and chair) helps you in achieving this.
