Archelis, A Wearable Chair That Helps People Remain Upright Comfortably for Long Periods of Time

Archelis is a wearable chair developed to allow wearers to remain upright comfortably for long periods of time. The Archelis uses an ergonomic design that distributes wearer’s weight across a wide area, reducing fatigue. The system was developed at Chiba University in Japan, and a product video shows it in use to aid a surgeon during an operation.
