Noonee AG, Zurich, Switzerland proposes the Chairless Chair. This is a wearable leg exoskeleton for employees in production environments. Weighing less than 4 kg, it is a hassle-free solution that enables users to sit wherever and whenever they need to. Users wear the device as they walk around and can easily lock it in the required sitting position at the push of a button. The Chairless Chair is simple to use and enables its wearer to switch quickly between standing, sitting and walking.
