(Comment by CEO Sankai)
We are taking on the challenge of creating a “Cybernics Industry” using Cybernics. This industry is positioned as a new industry following the robotics and IT industries. It is at the core of creating a society where people can be healthy and active with peace of mind, transcending disease, disability, and disuse. Suppose all members of the productive generation in developing countries can drastically reduce their health risks and play an active role in longevity and health. In that case, it will accelerate the creation of a vibrant society. Developing countries can start with the most advanced approaches that developed countries have just begun and can dramatically increase the speed of development. Prevention/health management/mental health is an essential theme for people and society. Through this project, we hope to investigate the hypothesis set and contribute to the future of developing countries.
