'Ergonomics is a science-based discipline that brings together knowledge from other subjects such as anatomy and physiology, psychology, engineering and statistics to ensure that designs complement the strengths and abilities of people and minimise the effects of their limitations. Rather than expecting people to adapt to a design that forces them to work in an uncomfortable, stressful or dangerous way, ergonomists and human factors specialists seek to understand how a product, workplace or system can be designed to suit the people who need to use it ... We aim to organise and run several events throughout the year and throughout the UK that give attendees the chance to meet others, to learn and to be inspired ... Regional Networks hold events which may include presentations, talks or site visits and are open to anyone.'

'Graham Fraser’s great interest was the treatment of the profoundly deaf by cochlear implants. His untimely death in 1994 cut short much promising research and development work designed to improve the quality of life of those disabled by profound deafness. In recognition of his great achievements and of the need for his work to continue, his friends and hospital colleagues set up the Foundation in his memory.' The Graham Fraser Memorial Lecture 'was established in 1994 by the Graham Fraser Foundation in commemoration of the work of Graham Fraser ... The Lectureship is open to any person who, in the opinion of the Selection Committee, is qualified to contribute to the advancement of the science and practice of otology, particularly with respect to the understanding, management and alleviation of profound deafness.'

'Established as a registered charity in 1979, in response to the need for specialised research into the causes and treatment of chronic pain in humans ... The Pain Relief Foundation started the Annual Lecture a few years ago as a Millennium project. Each year an eminent pain physician or scientist is invited to lecture on a topic currently of interest, in pain research or management. The lecture is given each year in honour of a person who contributed much to the field of pain treatment or research during his or her career. A short presentation about their life and work is given before the lecture by a fellow academic or clinician.'
