Robot care evaluation devices


Caregiver’s action simulation robot

It is a robot that measure the load reappearing nursing care person’s action for evaluate wearable transfer aids devices .


Elder people’s action simulate devices

It is a humanoid robot that simulate elder people’s action for developed to evaluate robot care devices.


Nursing care record assists system

It make a record of the nursing care action by simple operation that input from the application of the smart phone, tablet and a positional information sensor.


Robotic care devices evaluation assist sensor

It support to record and evaluate the usage of developed robotic care devices(Transfer action from a bed to a wheelchair, a toilet devices operating state) at nursing home.


Functional safety support CPU board/RTM Safety package

It realize various robotic care devices in accordance with the user’s needs.

It is a comon ground module to cope functional safety for safe and secure robot.


Dependable robotic cart

It is a test robot for safey test and certification at Robot Safety Center.

We explain a flow of safey test and certification.
