Aching legs from standing up for too long could soon be consigned to the past after designers in Japan developed a wearable chair that straps onto your body.

Respite can be found at any time when wearing the Archelis, or “wearable chair”, as it locks into place once users relax their legs and allows people to walk as they’re wearing it.

Archelis was initially built for surgeons who spend hours in the operating theatre but it could catch the eye of tired waiters, bored bar staff and even the weary commuter.

Mold company Nitto developed the chair alongside Chiba University and said the release date and price of the product was currently “undecided”.
