A German startup called Noonee, in collaboration with Swiss design consulting firm Sapetti, have devised a seating apparatus that isn’t your traditional chair. They have developed an ergonomic, wearable “chair” that is designed to allow an individual to sit wherever and whenever they feel the need to rest.

By helping to assuage worker fatigue, the tool could increase efficiency while decreasing the likelihood of injury
