Developed for use in its manufacturing facilities, the Hyundai Chairless Exoskeleton, or H-CEX, is a unique wearable exoskeleton meant to protect the knees of workers. Affixing to the user's body with belts on the waist, thigh, and knee, the entire suit allows great freedom of movement. The key to the H-CEX lies in its ability to provide a seat anywhere and everywhere. A set of legs can easily be deployed from the H-CEX and can hold up to 330 pounds at various angles.

Developed alongside the H-CEX was the Hyundai Vest Exoskeleton, or H-VEX. This design focuses on alleviating pressure on a person's body, especially in the knees. The strain on the neck and back is lessened allowing for an extra 132 pounds of strength.
