Exoskeleton lets factory workers
sit whenever and wherever they
A new exoskeleton allows factory workers to sit
down whenever they want, wherever they want.
The exoskeleton from Swiss design firm Sapetti,
named the “Chairless Chair”, is designed for
manufacturing environments, providing factory
workers the option to sit as needed.
The Chairless Chair allows its users to walk
around freely, providing instant support when they
need to get into a bending, squatting or crouching
Sapetti designed the exoskeleton for Swiss
company Noonee, a supplier of wearable
ergonomic mechatronic devices.
“With the Chairless Chair, Noonee’s clients can
not only improve the ergonomic environment for
their employees, by improving body posture, but
also solve and prevent certain occupational health
and safety challenges, and provide age-appropriate
working conditions for their aging employees,” said
Sapetti founder Marc Sapetti.
