Mitsufuji as A Wearable IoT Manufacturer, Released the Disposal Smart-Wear for the First Time in This Industry.

Mitsufuji Corporation (head office: Seika-cho, Kyoto; CEO: Ayumu Mitera) is announcing the developing
and launching of disposal smart-wear for the first time in this industry, as a new product of wearable IoT brand hamon® released last year.
This new product remains not only comfortable to wear but reasonable product price that can be used as disposal.
As specially designed for nursing care, it makes users easy to slip on/off, and is also suitable for bedridden residents.
It helps not only to realize better nursing care but also look after residents during sleep.
It also helps to overcome shortage of hands, which has become one of the biggest social issues in this industry.
With the launch of this new product, we plan to make a test installation to 8 nursing homes operated by social welfare organization “Seijinkai” (head office: Ofunato-city, Iwate; chairwoman: Shige Yamazaki) and 3 nursing homes operated by social welfare organization “Morinosato” (head office: Sendai-city, Miyagi; chairwoman: Shige Yamazaki) within this year, and a full-scale installation will be considered starting from 2018.
