Japan-based Panasonic has introduced three new products at the 41st Home Care and Rehabilitation Exhibition in Tokyo.


The company has introduced Resyone, an electric care bed with a section that can be separated and transformed into a fully reclining electric wheelchair. It will help users get out of bed.

Mimamori System, which features sensing technology, will focus on the facility inhabitants’ movement and breathing to make sure they are safe.

Panasonic also introduced a self-reliance support robot, which allows users stand up, walk, and sit down.

In addition, the company showcased Digital Mirror, a rehabilitation navigation system for hospitals and facilities, as well as Aqua Heart J Series (prototype), a barrier-free bath unit that was developed to help users be as independent as possible while taking a bath.

Panasonic’s communication aid "Let’s Chat", which will help people with both speech impairment and upper body paralysis, has also been showcased.
