The Chairless Chair | Innovation Nation



workers who stand all day in order to do
their jobs often develop medical issues with their legs backs and feet in
addition to the physical problems those workers could lose out financially
because they're no longer able to do their jobs now there's an innovative company in Europe that's working to relieve the
strain of standing up for hours on end Keith Gunura is the inventor of the
Chairless Chair he joins us from Switzerland thanks so much for joining
us thanks glad to be here the Chairless Chair is a sitting support it's more of
a tool rather than an exoskeleton per se unlike other exoskeletons the Chairless Chair doesn't give you strength it actually just provides you a support that you will need when you're tired so
when you're tired from working you want to sit down and the Chairless Chair will be
there for that purpose what do you hope to accomplish with this innovation basically my vision is to have the Chairless Chair being used in production
lines where the users or the workers have to stand for very long time two
weeks ago we finished our first actual user trials in an Audi factory and there
we actually identified one of my favorite areas which is the motor
assembly in a car manufacturing area of course other applications is in food
production areas for instance here in Switzerland they make chocolates made of titanium the chair offers a sturdy support that attaches to the user with a
series of straps but still allows a worker mobility to stand walk and move
unencumbered by an actual chair all the user has to do is essentially get into
the position or the desired posture and then press a button that we provide the
chair then locks in place at the angle of the users choosing and it can hold up
to about 240 pounds for Keith the Chairless Chair fulfills a personal passion to make the world a better place I've always wanted to leave something that would help people at least change the world in a
small way as the chair takes shape no doubt assembly workers worldwide will
feel the benefits the aching backs of workers all around the world thank you
thanks Mo thanks for having me

    The bad thing, they want to sell more without disclosing the prices. Maybe aliens can guess the price and buy from factory

    This is exciting. Apart from the offices, it could also be used in trains and buses. From the way things are going, commuters may need them.

    Cool invention.
    Could you make one for us mechanics who have to lean forward over engine bays with our knees against the bodywork.
    A pad for the chest is as far as I have got.
    Oh and surgeons, they have to lean forward a lot.
    Sheep shearers have already got it sorted.

    "Made of Titanium"… yeah, no company is gonna buy this for its employees. Hearing that, there is no way it is cheap.

    Wouldn't you fall backwards?
    Not to mention it looks super uncomfortable

    You're gonna need a breakaway joint in case you lean to far back or a chairless chair-leg in the back
