Why didn’t I think of this earlier?
Designed and developed by Swiss startup noonee, the Chairless Chair is a wearable device that acts like a chair-like-support exoskeleton when you need it, and a lightweight mechanical contraption when you don’t.
To wear it, you must strap it to your thigh and calves, followed by a tightening of a belt around your hips. Y you must assume a comfortable sitting posture, and lock it in place before activating the 6V battery that powers it for up to 24 hours. Your bodyweight is supported by a variable damper (technology that is popularly used in car suspensions).
The Chairless Chair has been developed for factory workers who have to work heavy machines for several hours a day. It has indeed met its target market, as companies like Audi, and BMW have signed up to deploy these devices to factory workers by the end of the year.
