Exercise chair model

Isometric view of the designed chair.

As part of a 24-hour rapid (digital) prototyping event, I produced the following model of an exercise chair in collaboration with Shelly-Ginelle Sicat. The intention is to increase motion in sedentary people such as the elderly, preventing long periods of immobility in various muscle groups and assisting in safe rising. The design is meant to be more modern and ergonomic than that of the typical armchair.

An animation of the concept's range of motion follows. The Fusion 360 model can be accessed from the gallery page.
