japan GOOD DESIGN award: the wearable chair for surgery 'archelis' wins g-mark 2018

one of the winning entries of this year’s japan GOOD DESIGN award, archelis is a wearable chair created to help medical staff sit and stand stably, and without burdening their muscles, while performing a surgery. a useful tool for doctors who are forced to operate in a crouching position for a long time, the chair supports body weight by holding up a large area of the shins and femurs to relieve pressure.

designed by hiroaki nishimura for japanese company NITTO, archelis features a design of separated legs that enables users to adopt a specific stance according to their preferred posture. this results to an improved stability, particularly important during operations such as laparoscopic surgery which requires ‘a trunk of a body’ to be fixed as it controls a forceps by millimeters. the chair does not require any electric power to function and can be used without cables, providing stable movements and safety in the surgery room.
