Abstract
A wearable kneel-sit support device includes a U-shaped body that is pivotally connected to both a seat member and a base member. A linking member connects the seat member and the base member, such that moving one of the seat member and the base member causes both the seat member and the base member to rotate from a folded position adjacent the leg of the user to an unfolded position. In the unfolded position, the base member can rest on a horizontal surface and the seat member is substantially parallel to the base member, so that the wearer can sit on the seat while kneeling. The device may be worn on the lower leg of a user in a folded position to allow unhindered ambulation.
