Abstract: This work analyzes the feasibility of a design of a foldable chair that is strapped onto the user. It can be used anywhere as the user needs to sit. Many chairless chairs or wearable-chairs have been invented over the years. Here, the focus is on the findings from the simulations and analyses performed to investigate the critical stress area in the design assembly as well as its factor of safety. The simulations included in this paper are motion analysis and stress analysis. The outcome of this investigation is that this design is be able to deliver its purpose if it were to be manufactured for safe use by the masses.
