How does Japanese technology solves the issues of aging society? Toilet timing predicting wearable device restores dignity of people

World is becoming old and finds many new problems related to aging. We found a problem which is most primitive but not be looked in so much. It is incontinence. Even though more than 50% of elderly people have some problems in excretion, there is not many solutions but wearing diaper.Our toilet timing predicting wearable device, DFree, solves the problem and support people to live their life as long as possible. DFree tells when it is necessary to go to the bathroom by tracking the progression of bladder movements using non-invasive ultrasonic sensors and analyzing data using a patented algorithm.

The life span of Japanese people is longest in the world and it will be more than 90 years in some decades. However, we worry about becoming old because of anxiety of money, health and social relationship. Length of life is important but at the same time quality of life is also or more important. Incontinence is one of things happening to many elderly people. It sometimes make their quality of life worse. Many people hesitate to go out or to do activities outside because worrying about accidents. Our device has been used by over 2,000 people in Japan. Many people are released from stress just by knowing the situation of their bladder visually. They feel that they regain the control. In our research of the user of DFree, 80% answered that their quality of life was improved by using DFree.

We support not only users but also caregivers. In nursing home, toilet care is one of the hardest task for caregivers. By using DFree, they can understand rhythm of urination of each residents and optimize care such as size of protections, schedule of toilet care etc. One of clients of DFree decreased time of continence care by 30%. The more important fact is that many caregivers said that they feel well because they can know residents better  so that they provide better care.

We got inquiries to use DFree from more than 60 countries. So we decided to expand our service to world. We are selling it in Japan, US and Europe now. We would like to share our experience and knowledge from the most aging country.

Introducing Roborock S5 Max: Everyday Mopping Made Easy

Everyone hates chores. No one loves to vacuum, and definitely, no one loves to mop. But that doesn’t mean mopping should be ignored. It’s one of the best ways to rid your home of tiny fibers, little hairs, and – for anyone with allergies – everything from dander to pollen. That’s why Roborock has created the S5 Max, the easiest way to start mopping every day.

Roborock robots have been recognized for their remarkable intelligence by media all over Europe and the US, most obviously in the way that they use precision LIDAR scanning and advanced algorithms to not only map a room but to understand it. This means they are able to clean rooms quickly, efficiently, and logically, without any of the frustrations that other robot vacuums may cause.

Now with the Roborock S5 Max, it is bringing some of its intelligence to mopping. Equipped with an extra-large water tank and an electronic water pump that shares technology with pumps used in critical scenarios – including hospital IV drips – it offers a new level of convenience to users. It also unlocks a range of new mopping abilities that would never have been possible with a simple gravity-fed system.

Unique S5 Max features:

  • Total Water Shutoff – Water does not drip when mopping is not engaged, so that water can be stored ready for a scheduled mop
  • Precision Water Management – Fine control over the amount of water used means users can choose the best amount for cleaning different floor types
  • No Mop Zones – Virtual no-mop zones automatically activate when the mop pad is attached, allowing users to mopping schedules without worrying about soaking their carpets
  • Selective Room Mopping – Schedule mopping for different rooms, and using different amounts of water
  • Mechanically Sprung Mop Pad – Spring loading the mop pad replaces varying pressure with a constant 300g of cleaning force throughout the clean

Returning Roborock Highlights:

  • Intense Suction – Suction powerful enough to lift AA batteries brings up the toughest dirt, even with a full dustbin
  • Adaptive Route Algorithms – Clean faster with adaptive algorithms that calculate the most efficient way to clean an entire room based on its shape and the locations of obstacles
  • Precision LIDAR – +/-2cm accurate maps, created in real-time at 300RPM
