Relationship between ergonomics and regenerative medicine is non-obvious but important correlations exist between these two areas. By definition, ergonomics is the study of relationship between people, their activities, their equipment and their environment. Thus, functioning (and malfunctioning) of our body is an essential aspect of ergonomics and this underlines the importance of regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine will increasingly become an integral part of ergonomics as we move toward developing a workforce with a diverse capability: physical, sensorial and cognitive.Use of repetitive mechanical force, static loading and extreme positions induce changes in the tissues which are transduced to the cellular and molecular level. Understanding these features is critical for practicing effective treatment strategies and for recommending better work environment. Thus, regenerative medicine will play a major role both from a fundamental understanding of MSDs and for development of therapeutic strategies.Stem cell based regenerative medicine offers tremendous hope for treatment of MSDs due to the multifunctional characteristics of stem cells. Stem cells are characterized by ability to self-renew and to differentiate along multiple lineage pathways. (DebanjanSarkar,Regenerative Medicine and Ergonomics: Building Bridges)
