(Reuters) – If you or your employees have a job that requires standing for long periods of time, Japanese startup Archelis may have the device for you. The ‘archelisFX’, whose name derives from the Japanese for ‘walkable chair’, is a wearable exoskeleton on display at this year’s CES virtual device and technology fair. Attaches to the legs and disperses the user’s body weight. That makes standing up less tiring and can ease back and leg pain for factory workers, surgeons and others who need to stand for hours, the company says. “It allows people to walk or move while wearing it and people can easily put it on regardless of their body shape or size,” said Katsuhiko Saho, Archelis business development manager. Archelis said the product will launch this year, with a retail price of around $ 5,000.
