Handbook of Human Factors and Ergonomics

Human factors and ergonomics commonly referred to as human factors is the application of psychological and physiological principles to the engineering and design of products, processes, and systems. The goal of human factors is to reduce human error , increase productivity, and enhance safety and comfort with a specific focus on the interaction between the human and the thing of interest. The field is a combination of numerous disciplines, such as psychology , sociology , engineering , biomechanics , industrial design , physiology , anthropometry , interaction design , visual design , user experience , and user interface design. In research, human factors employs the scientific method to study human behavior so that the resultant data may be applied to the four primary goals. In essence, it is the study of designing equipment, devices and processes that fit the human body and its cognitive abilities.

Human factors, with its emphasis on user- or person-centered design, can help to ensure that health care in the home suits the people, the tasks, and the environments involved and that the care provided is safe, effective, and efficient. The goals of human factors are to optimize human and system efficiency and effectiveness, safety, health, comfort, and quality of life. To date, there has been only limited application of human factors knowledge and methods to health care in the home. This report is designed to call attention to the resulting missed opportunities and the great potential advantages of bringing a human factors approach into the center of planning for high-quality and safe home health care.

Design processes such as human-centered design, which involve the end user throughout the product development and testing process, can be crucial in ensuring that the product meets the needs and capabilities of the user, particularly in terms of safety and user experience. The structured and iterative nature of human-centered design can often present a challenge when design teams are faced with the necessary, rapid, product development life cycles associated with the competitive connected health industry. We wanted to derive a structured methodology that followed the principles of human-centered design that would allow designers and developers to ensure that the needs of the user are taken into account throughout the design process, while maintaining a rapid pace of development. In this paper, we present the methodology and its rationale before outlining how it was applied to assess and enhance the usability, human factors, and user experience of a connected health system known as the Wireless Insole for Independent and Safe Elderly Living WIISEL system, a system designed to continuously assess fall risk by measuring gait and balance parameters associated with fall risk.

Этот новый стандарт шифрования означал бы, что АНБ может прослушивать кого угодно, где угодно и когда угодно. - Ты прав - и так и должно быть! - сурово отрезала Сьюзан.  - Если бы ты не нашел черный ход в Попрыгунчике, мы могли бы взломать любой шифр, вместо того чтобы полагаться на ТРАНСТЕКСТ.

ГЛАВА 128 Когда Сьюзан проснулась, солнце уже светило вовсю. Его нежные лучи проникали сквозь занавеску и падали на пуховую перину. Она потянулась к Дэвиду. Это ей снится. Трудно было даже пошевельнуться: события вчерашнего дня вычерпали все ее силы без остатка.
