Tokyo Institute of Technology and healthcare ventures Iwell, Tokyo Gas, and Osaki Electric Co., Ltd. have been conducting demonstration experiments for six weeks in Kakegawa City, Shizuoka Prefecture, with the aim of building a health promotion platform for improving pre-illness.Visualize the health condition of the elderly through health examinations and collection of life data so that they can improve their lives before they become long-term care.
According to Tokyo Gas, 18 elderly people aged 68 to 79 from 19 households in Kakegawa City participated in the experiment.At the welfare center, the blood pressure, weight, etc. of the participants are checked and blood is collected according to the health exercises held twice a month, and smart watches are distributed to the participants to measure the daily exercise amount, and the motion sensor installed at home. I collected life data at.
In addition to image analysis by artificial intelligence of Tokyo Institute of Technology, these data can be diagnosed by specialists to identify issues for improving life and give appropriate advice.
It is estimated that by 2025, 3% of Japan's population will be 65 years of age or older.As a result, medical expenses are expected to increase significantly, and elderly households are considered to be at high health risk due to delays in discovering declines in living functions.
At Tokyo Institute of Technology and others, we are focusing on the pre-illness stage, which is located between illness and healthy, and by taking measures at this stage, we are building a health promotion platform to prevent serious illness.
