Wearable Chair Lets You Sit without Sitting

by Shane McGlaun

When I was in college, I watched a bunch of different surgeries being performed in the operating room. The thing that sticks out in my mind is just how long doctors have to spend standing in one single location, without moving. You can’t exactly shift your weight or fidget when you literally have someone’s heart in your hands.

Sure there were plenty of anti-fatigue mats on the floor and such, but those don’t work that well. A Japanese firm called Archelis has invented a wearable chair that it sees as helping surgeons and other folks who have to stand and work constantly.

The device looks sort of like an exoskeleton, but isn’t powered at all. The joints at the ankle and thigh can lock and support the wearer in a variety of positions without having to place needless strain on the muscles or human joints.

It sounds pretty cool, even if it looks weird. The wearable chair is still in development right now, and not yet available for purchase..
