This exoskeleton lets you ‘sit’ while standing
It straps to the legs
and disperses the wearer's bodyweight
Japanese startup Archelis designed it
for factory workers, surgeons, chefs, hairdressers
or anyone who has to stand for hours in one place
KATSUHIKO SAHO, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER, ARCHELIS,"Our product is a exoskeleton that helps to reduce the burden on the legs and waist for people who work long hours. The advantages of our product are it allows people to walk or move while wearing it and people can put it on easily regardless of their body shape or size. Another advantage is that the product can be used without a power source. Currently we are planning to distribute from around April this year. It is a very lightweight model, weighing 2kg on each leg, and I think this product could help workers in the factories. Also we would like to expand overseas such as to the U.S. later this year."
