Publication history, Reflections & comments
Handout for a lecture at the Second Internation Workshop in Microsurgery 1969, led by Earl Owen, Sydney. This was the first-ever mention of both ergonomics and microsurgery in the one phrase [see comments accompanying the handout itself].
Two papers from Singapore 1978, the middle of three annual international workshops. My contention is that these two papers marked the solution of all ergonomic problems in microsurgery. They have a low citation index, but their findings were incorporated in microsurgical practice and by instrument designers and makers.
