After conducting research focused on behavior on the bed such as waking up and leaving we help sending it all around the world as product superior in design. Now there are very few nursing care products designed as goods for living in comfort. We will propose the way and products that elder can live safety and comfortably in a design-viewpoint.

L.M.D.P. Programs for healthcare design

BIODESIGN of  Stanford Univ.

Developing Medical Equipment / Medical / Healthcare System / Healthcare Business is not as easy as non m medical product . For development we have to learn a lot about various legal issues such as Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Act (PMD Act) ,Medical Care Act, Act on the Protection of Personal Information,the medical insurance system, care insurance system.and so on. There are many stakeholders as doctors, nurses, co-medicals, patients, patient family. The ability to make their needs visible, to gather needs and to make solutions for searching needs in medical and care market. We have started LMDP health care design program. This is the co-creation program (co-creation with R&D, Startup,designer, doctor,nurse and so on) for healthcare innovation.
