The article demonstrates the important problematic areas associated to the ergonomics of surgical instruments during their usage. For this purpose, an analysis of cholecystectomy surgery with the use of laparoscopic instruments was conducted. There was identified the individual operations performed by surgeon, as well as the particular laparoscopic instruments. The prepared in this way study material, allowed for evaluation of design features of tools used in laparoscopic surgery from functional and ergonomic point of view and developing special research procedure for ergonomic assessment. Particularly, the critical states within the selected body postures in the system were identified: an operator (surgeon) and a surgical tool, as well as the areas of ergonomics corrective intervention in the process of using laparoscopic instruments.
