Could the Chairless Chair benefit you?
How could the Chairless Chair benefit you or your employees? Do you work in a standing position or with your back bent?
If so, you are exposed to an elevated risk of developing back problems such as herniated disks or generic back problems.
In accordance with a study conducted by the German health insurance DAK, it has shown that three quarter of all professionals suffer from severe back issues.
How can you protect yourself from such health issues and how does it work?
In order to keep your back healthy, doctors and scientists recommend switching between sitting, standing and walking positions.
The noonee chairless chair provides:
- Individual seat height adjustment
- Support of your posture while working in a sitting position
- Speed – It takes less than 30 seconds to put on the device and even less time to take it off
- Freedom of movement
- Replaces disruptive chairs and/or standing supports
The Chairless Chair® can be easily adjusted to various body types from 1.50 to 2.00 m and worn with different safety.

CAS Ergo visits Ford Motor Company!
CAS Ergo visits Ford Motor Company!…. This meant that CAS Assembly Tooling and Services were able to provide a demonstration to 12 employees from Ford. Half of them were visiting from the overseas plant in Turkey and the rest being based at the Ford Dunton Technical Centre in Basildon. They come a long way to see design work every now and again so great to tie this in with their visit to the UK.
Initially they had and application in mind being the ‘Noonee’ Chairless Chair. Engineers have to climb inside the back of vans and attach electrical connections in a bent over position. So, we wanted to trial the Chairless Chair for this as they could trial it in the back of the van. Then to complete the work with less stress and strain on the back/spine. Inside the van, the Chairless chair worked well but there were some red flags about stepping in and out of it. These are now being discussed.
We also demonstrated how the Ironhand, Hunic Suit and Levitate Airframe devices could work for them. They were also impressed with these. They are being considered in other areas at Ford and how they could be utilised in the right department.
Ford meets CAS employees Craig Smith and Ethan Gill
CAS ERGO have provided some great options to the manufacturing engineers giving an insight into ergonomic solutions for use in the plant. These have not been considered before.
The feedback so far has been very positive.😃
For further information call us on 0121 327 1700 and speak to Neil Evans, Sales Director, or one of the CAS Ergo team, Ethan Gill or Craig Smith.
Cas Ergo demonstrations
As art of the Cas Ergo demonstrations booked in, today it was the turn of a weapons company in the UK.
The customer had seen the ‘Ironhand’ on the BBC news earlier in the year and had enquired through our manufacturer, Bioservo about this fantastic product.
The opportunity arose in that Craig and Ethan were able to demo over a teams call this morning. There were 8 people on the call, all interested in what we had to say about the Ironhand.
CAS Ergo – the questions asked were :
How many times can the Ironhand go through the washing machine?
Does it have any effect on reducing vibration?
Can they have access to the Bioservo academy? (watching video’s on how to set up and use)
Great questions. All to be answered in due course…
Tomorrow we are at a large diesel engine manufacturer in Peterborough demonstrating all of our CAS Ergo products along with Martin Wilcockson who will be discussing tooling solutions.
The Ironhand Glove
The Ironhand glove is designed to mimic the human body. The technology follows the user’s actions in an intuitive way and augments the gripping force only if the operator initiates a grasp.
Ironhand’s main ergonomic property is the ability to add force to the flexion of the fingers. So, this helps to relieve muscles that are responsible for flexing and gripping. By reducing the amount of force and strain put on these tendons, the use of Ironhand decreases the risk of cumulative injury.
CAS are very proud of the ‘ERGO’ products are able to provide as a UK distributor. This is one of the most advanced exoskeletal systems around.
Demonstration of the Ironhand. Demo by the CAS team
Why Ironhand? How will this help employees?
The Ironhand glove is equipped with artificial tendons and pressure sensitive sensors located on the palm. They are also in the fingers’ middle phalanges and tips. So, the sensors detect when the user grabs an object which triggers the servo motors installed in the power pack. Then, a microcomputer then calculates the amount of power to be added and small motors pull the artificial tendons. As a result, the finger joints flex and a grip are performed with less force needed by the operator. But, the harder the user grips, the more force is applied by Ironhand. The Smart Assist function uses machine learning. It also adapts the behavior of the glove based on how the operator is using it, making it intuitive.
The best thing we can advise you to do is try this out in your workplace. You really need to see it to believe it. We can demonstrate the benefits with you.

Hunic suit – How would this benefit you?
The main purpose of the supportive suit is that it protects the spine, keeps it straight and prevents workplace injuries. With one of these suits, this works because it avoids the overloading of muscles and joints. In collaboration with physiotherapists, sports scientists, and designers it aids workers with lifting and carrying loads by up to 21%. It also promotes ergonomic movement. The back support ensures a straight back and an upright position.
The Hunic Suit, a soft exo, is a fantastic support for many businesses. In particular, laboratories, warehouses, and packaging sites, to name but a few.
Experience the SoftExo in your company! CAS Assembly Tooling and Services offer you flexible options to get to know the SoftExo:
Presentation on site
