Aiming to provide welfare equipment tailored to each person’s needs

It is necessary to design welfare devices and equipment by tailoring them according to each person’s body shape and physical and mental abilities because, after all, these are the individuals who will use these devices. Furthermore, we have recently seen an expansion in universal designs to ensure that everyone, irrespective of whether they are handicapped, can use equipment with ease. Our laboratory is currently conducting research on welfare devices to tailor them to each person’s requirements, as well as to provide a doctor-friendly surgery assistance system.
