As someone who drives to and from work, I forget about the things people have to deal with when their commute involves public transportation. My sister comes to mind, living in downtown Toronto, she is constantly using the street car to get to and from places and she isn’t always as lucky to get a seat on her long commute. Many understand this fatigue from the commute alone, not to mention if you’re carrying heavy things too. This exhaustion being experienced could be eased if there was a place to sit down for a little. Designed to conveniently give you a seat whenever and wherever you need it, Lex has got your back – literally.
How Lex works is you strap the device around your waist and the 2 aerospace-grade aluminum legs at the back that turn into a seating device when you lean back. Between the two legs Lex provides and your own two legs, you have an extremely stable seat with 4 points of contact, which can even help correct bad posture as you are also giving your tired body a rest.
Lex weighs just over a kilogram (thanks to its aluminum construction) and sits on the user being strapped around the waist and thighs. Although it barely weighs anything at all, this device is built to hold extreme amounts of weight. It can take over 120 kilograms of weight (264.5 lbs), which is pretty hard to imagine. By giving a simple push, the legs will deploy and when leaning back you now have a perfect instantaneous seat wherever you are. When you are reading to keep on going, the legs slide back up into their spots, allowing you to roam freely again.
These chairs are actually pretty good for the work environment too, as opposed to the normal office chairs we all tend to slouch in. Typically if you were to look for a chair at say Walmart or Target, whether it be dining chair, accent chair, kitchen chair, or office chair, they will 100% not be as compact or convenient as this design. Lex really brings it to the next level, shifting our idea and definition of what a chair really can be. It rests right underneath the users thighs which provides a great amount of support while propping the thighs up at 120° angle to the spine, which promotes good posture and natural spinal arrangement – boy could I ever use one of these bad boys! Whether you’re on your way to work, at work, or at a crowded get together and feel the need to sit down, Lex will give you an instant seat and be there for you when you need it the most.
