Ergonomic Nightmare of the Week: High Heels

Need we say more ...

"All women, (and many men) have worn high heels at one time or another. Some women (like myself) avoid them at all costs. Some are forced to wear them to work; others, wear them every chance they get, the higher the better.

But high heels are definitely one of those things that choose form over function. High heels are in fact, an absolute ergonomic nightmare.

The question is, why do we continue to torture ourselves? I would be perfectly happy if high heels were banned from this earth. High heels really do not serve any practical function, and they only look good because we have established a standard of fashion and beauty that says that they do. What if we decided that a woman’s foot perched unnaturally atop a teetering platform on a stick did not look good? We no longer think that foot binding is a good idea, so there is no reason why we couldn’t change our minds about high heels.

Unfortunately, I don’t think high heels are going away any time soon."    (Continued via Ergonomenon)    [Ergonomics Resources]
