Ergonomics vs. Bionomics
The difference between ergonomics and Bionomics is that the focus isn't on the physical environment (ergonomics) per se, but on the proper management of the body.Bionomics was conceived as an answer to the ubiquitous sprain/strain type injuries. It is said that 80% of the population will experience aback-related injury in their lifetime. Back injuries, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and other injuries of this ilk, now termed musculoskeletal disorders, cost U.S. industry $60 billion per year. Lifestyles of millions of people are affected due to the pain and discomfort of these unfortunate injuries. Attempts to prevent these injuries in the past have mostly gone unrewarded.
