The 'Chairless Chair' by Sapetti is a flexible seating solution that provides active factory workers with a place to sit as needed.

This flexible design has been created for factory environments, where it is noted that "traditional chairs would be an obstacle." As such, when the Chairless Chair is worn, the user is free to walk and move about as usual, and either bend, sit or crouch as needed and still have the support of the body suit. Sapetti specifically developed the Chairless Chair for Noonee, which is a supplier of what it calls "wearable ergonomic mechatronic devices."

Across factories and warehouses, employees are being outfitted with both high-tech and low-tech exoskeletons that do everything from give them superhuman strength for heavy lifting to preventing pain from repetitive movements.
