  • Does your job involve you having to stand for a long period of time? Then worry not as Nitto, a Japanese Company, introduces “Archelis,” the Wearable Chair. It gives you the chance to sit without actually sitting down. It was initially developed to help medical professionals who undergo grueling hours of standing in the operation room.

    The Design of the Chair

    Most people worry about not being able to stand due to sitting down for long periods while at work. However, some people endure more fatigue by standing at work for a long period of time. That is why Archelis has been designed to reduce this fatigue. It is a chair made of a combination of durable metal and carbon which works perfectly to ease a person’s movement. Although it is strong, it is also lightweight so as to give comfort to all possible movements.

    How Does it Work?

    All you have to do is to simply strap Archelis onto your legs so that it is able to follow every single movement you perform. The best way to do this is to bend your knees first and bring your weight to the upper part of the unit. Archelis will then be able to support you as if you were really sitting in order to take the strain off your legs and feet. As long as you follow the steps, you’ll surely feel as comfortable as possible while working.

    Future Plans of Use
