Paper Abstract

Human Engineering involves a systematic approach to workspace design, and is predicated upon the concept that it is better to modify equipment in a workspace to meet the con-straints of users, rather than to modify the actions of users to meet the constraints of equipment. In accordance with Human Engineering practices, the first step in the develop-ment of a workspace is to state the purposes of the workspace. Subsequently, the equipment and personnel which will be included in the workspace should be identified, and the manner in which the equipment will function within the workspace should be examined. Finally, communication links within the system should be planned. The above sequence of steps can be applied to biomechanics cinematography laboratories whose purposes are either to perform research or to provide facilities for both teaching and research.
