Chairless Chair for improved ergonomics in Audi’s production plants
- Carbon-fiber construction supports employees in assembly work
- Audi Board of Management Member for Production Prof. Dr. Hubert Waltl: “Ergonomically designed working environment for more well-being and better health”

The health of its employees has top priority for Audi. For this reason, at its plant in Neckarsulm, the company is testing a new technology that eases many assembly activities: the so-called “chairless chair.” This high-tech carbon-fiber construction allows employees to sit without a chair. At the same time, it improves their posture and reduces the strain on their legs.
