Title: WEARABLE SITTING POSTURE ASSISTING DEVICE AND METHOD FOR PUTTING ON SUCH A DEVICE
Abstract:
The invention is based on a wearable sitting posture assisting device (100a), comprising at least one leg unit (102a) featuring at least one upper leg (106a) and at least one lower leg (124a; 124b; 124c), the lower leg (124a; 124b; 124c) defining at least one lower leg longitudinal axis (128a; 128b; 128c; 128f); and comprising at least one foot unit (142a; 142b; 142c; 142e; 142f; 142g) having at least one shoe connector (144a; 144b; 144e; 144f; 144g) for connecting to a shoe (214a) or a foot of a person (200a). It is proposed that the shoe connector (144a; 144b; 144e; 144f; 144g) is movable relative to the lower leg (124a; 124b; 124c) in a direction (10a; 10b) at least substantially parallel to the lower leg longitudinal axis (128a; 128b; 128c; 128f) in at least one shoe connector wearing state.
