Title : Ergonomics- The Human Engineering


Ergonomics is broadly defined as the study of individuals in their working field. It is explained as the process of arranging and designing the place of work, equipment, and systems being used, so as to make them fit for people to use them. The ergonomics aimed to prevent musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and associated injuries being caused by the sustained or sudden experience of force, jerks, repetitive movements, and uncomfortable posture. Dental setup can also cause various health issues among dental health professionals. Various musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are encountered in our field related to wrong posture, prolonged work duration, and incorrect instrument handling. This can cause a harmful impact on the occupational health, productivity, and careers of dentists. Ergonomics evaluates the work being done, how it is done, what kind of instruments are being used, and what is the overall assessment of the working environment. Healthy ergonomic conditions are the safest, easiest, safest, and most well-organized methods to work. An improved ergonomic dental working set-up created by assessing the dental setups helps in increasing the safety and overall well-being of dental health professionals, their assistants, as well as patients. The application of ergonomics in a pediatric dental setup not only provides us with safety benefits but also enhances our working capability and productivity. This also helps in reducing mental as well as physical stress that happens in day-to-day dental practice.

Audience Takes Away Notes:

  • The concept of ergonomics in dentistry helps in increasing awareness among dental professionals in relation to their health and well-being.
  • The use of this concept in practice, not only benefits dental professionals but can also provide maximum benefit to the pediatric population.
