    what is meant by ergonomics?
    Have you tried an internet search?

    In DT it's the science of body measurements so when you design something you can make sure it will fit ie a chair is the right size for comfort.

    This is a good webiste for DT:

    Hi I do Product Design under OCR. Ergonomics, in your case, probably only prefers to how the user will interact with the product comfortably (i.e. hand positions, enough space to insert hard in allocated spot etc). So just take measurements of the users hands and whatever else the user is going to interact your product with.
