Exoskeleton assist suit which enables long-hour standing works without stress on legs and lower back

Feature2.

No power supply needed

By supporting the body in a standing position, the fatigue of the body caused by long-hour standing works is greatly reduced. By balancing and supporting your weight with your shins and thighs, your body trunk is kept stable, making you relieved from back pain

It all started from a request for reducing the burden on doctors

Hideyuki Fujisawa is the second-generation president of Nitto. Co., Ltd.,

an SME manufacturer mainly engaged in metalworking. Nitto, established 54 years ago,

specializes in manufacturing its products under an integrated production system from development to mass production.

One day, Fujisawa had an opportunity to meet with Hiroshi Kawahira, M.D., Ph. D., and Ryoichi Nakamura, Ph. D. in Engineering, both of whom served then as associate professors of Chiba University's Center for Frontier Medical Engineering.

They consulted Fujisawa about new product development, asking, "Wouldn't it be possible to reduce the burden on doctors who are forced to stand for long hours during surgical operations?"

Fujisawa, a pro in engineering, and the two professors, experts in their respective areas, hit it off right away and enjoyed a lively conversation about the new product. They even generated some specific ideas on the spot.

 

Looking back the reasons behind this, Fujisawa believes that all of the people there shared the same strong passion to help doctors who face tough work every day.

Fujisawa named this prototype "Archelis" so that people could easily imagine its function as a chair allowing a user to walk (in Japanese, this kind of chair is pronounced "arukeru isu," which is directly translated into a "walkable chair").
