Archelis: The Wearable Walkable Chair

With more and more technology every day, including the speedy growth of the wearable industry, tons of valuable and useful products are being created.

Archelis, a wearable chair that offers lower body support, has been designed to help surgeons who stand for long periods of time performing surgeries.



Archelis was designed by Nitto, Chiba University’s Center for Frontier Medical Engineering, Hiroaki Nishimura Design, and Japan Polymer Technology.

At first, Archelis doesn’t look like a chair, but a leg brace instead. This wearable chair wraps around the wearer’s buttocks and legs, providing support and allowing wearers to sit down wherever, whenever. This is perfect for everyone – workers, organizations, or people in general.



This chair has been developed to reduce the problem of fatigue and burnout due to extended standing. Whether you’re a surgeon, a factory or assembly worker, a company wanting to maximize efficiency of workers, or you simply want to sit briefly after walking for a while, this chair is for you.

With Archelis, mini breaks of, for example, less than a minute are possible too, reducing fatigue and increasing productivity.

Archelis is expected to hit the market this summer! To follow this product’s progress, you can visit the Archelis Facebook Page or the company’s personal website.
