Through our proprietary deep learning model combined with medical insights, our system evaluates your health condition just by having you walk in front of a camera.
We display diseases with potential risks, supporting physicians in their decision-making process. By introducing an innovative examination flow that involves video recording, we promote the digital transformation (DX) of the medical field.
We detect locomotive syndrome (musculoskeletal disorders) and recommend/suggest appropriate interventions to facilitate early recovery.
Research and Development
Through collaborative research with universities and medical institutions, we are developing new models and expanding the range of diseases we can evaluate.
Why we focus on "Walking"
Walking on one's own feet not only engages muscles throughout the body but also stimulates brain functions and relieves stress, contributing to overall health.
Falls, fractures, and musculoskeletal disorders are responsible for approximately 25% of primary reasons for requiring care*1.
*1 Overview of the 2019 National Livelihood Basic Survey by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.
'Proportion of the main reasons for requiring care by current care level'
Combined total for fractures, falls, joint disorders, and spinal cord injuries: 24.8%
Musculoskeletal diseases often lack definitive biomarkers *2, making differentiation between them a challenge, even for experts. However, since walking patterns can vary based on the type and severity of a disease, we have focused on the act of 'walking' and decided to develop a system designed to evaluate the possibility of a disease and assess one's health status.
*2 Refers to items or substances within the body that indicate the presence or absence of a particular disease, changes in the condition of a disease, or the effectiveness of treatment. This includes vital signs used in medical practice, biochemical tests, blood tests, tumor markers, and various other clinical test values, as well as imaging diagnostic data.
Members with sharp personalities come together, becoming a powerful force to change the future of healthcare.
