This Wearable Exoskeleton Helps Relieve Back and Neck Stress
Back and neck pain caused by long periods of sitting is a growing problem for today’s workforce. Many of us need to take a long commute to work sitting uncomfortably in cramped spaces, before taking a seat at a desk for long stretches at a time.
It has been shown that sitting with bad posture for long periods of time can affect your back, neck and even mood. The inventors of Lex want to change this.
They have designed and developed Lex, a wearable exoskeleton that gives you an ergonomic chair whenever you need it. Lex gives you an extra pair of legs to provide a supported sitting position, no matter if you are waiting for a bus, or in a long meeting.
Lex stays with you as you move around your workspace
The device is comprised of a belt and two aluminum legs. The legs retract when not in use so you can move freely, jump, and even run.
When you need to sit, simply pull the tabs and the Lex's legs will move into position giving you support when you need it most. Lex is light, durable and perfectly designed to integrate with your body.
The exoskeleton will reduce the stress commonly associated with sitting by providing an ergonomic position to sit in every time. Once the legs are extracted, simply squat until the Lex legs touch the floor and comfortably take your weight.
Currently, Lex can work with users up to 120kg in weight. Lex lets you move around your open office space without the clutter of chairs.
