About this product :
The Chairless Chair is exactly what it sounds like – a portable contraption that looks nothing like a chair and allows you to sit on it whenever you want and wherever you want.
This flexible, ergonomic device looks more like an exoskeleton and extends from the hip to the backs of the feet – making you look a little bit like a humanoid cyborg, at least from the back and waist-down.
Created by German start-up company noonee AG, the Chairless Chair is made using hi-tech composite polymers, weighs just 3.5 kilograms and adapts to different body sizes and safety shoes.
However, contrary to what you might think, this exochair wasn’t built for the lazy. In fact, inventor Keith Gunura says its intended use is for employees at manufacturing firms who have to stand for long periods of time at work and sometimes bend into unnatural positions to assemble a product. As noonee AG explains: “The main application is for the manufacturing companies, where workers are required to stand for a long period of time.
“With the Chairless Chair the users walk together with the sitting support while wearing it, without obstructing the workspace, at the same time avoiding strenuous postures such as bending, squatting or crouching.”
The device has garnered a lot of enthusiasm, particularly in the car manufacturing industry, since its launch in April this year.
Companies like Audi have been trying out the Chairless Chair and Gunura says his product has also been tested by Seat, Skoda, Daimler, BMW and Renault.
Opinions of techiesms :
This is an awesome invention not only for all the workers in manufacturing companies but also for the regular people, who can use it in daily life. Maybe it looks bulky but i don’t think that would a big problem. Obviously for workers working for a long time without getting to sit, this will ease a lot of burden from them. As of common use i think people standing in bus-stop, banks, etc could also genuinely use it. Overall for me it’s a remarkable product.
