Laboratory for Practical Technology in Community

We are engaged in research activities to apply recent technologies developed in various fields for promoting health and extending healthy life expectancy.

Research focus

  1. We are engaged in activities to demonstrate the effectiveness of technologies for long-term care and to apply them in society, aiming to support independence of the elderly and to improve the quality of long-term care. We are also participating in the related projects of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.
  2. We are conducting empirical research on the usefulness of rehabilitation with physical activity monitoring to improve physical functions in local residents.
  3. To promote social participation, we are conducting a survey on the construction of systems that are useful for improving accessibility to local community resources.
