Exoskeletons Bring Ergonomics to Industry

April 2015

Audi AG has begun testing its new “Chairless Chair” technology in its factory in Neckarsulm in Germany. It is a light exoskeleton made of carbon fibre which allows employees to be supported while they stand, and to sit, anytime and anywhere, without having to have a conventional chair. The “Chairless Chair” has been developed in partnership with the Swiss start-up Nonee AG.
