The foundation of the “Health Research Institute”
Bringing science to health and developing technologies to support health maintenance of the mind and body
We aim at contributing to human health and quality of life for the sustainable development society. We integrate various fields of science and engineering, and develop human-compatible technologies.
We have three priority research subjects, 1) medical devices and regulatory science, 2) bio-devices for visualization of health conditions, and 3) measurement and characterization of factors that affect human health. We also collaborate with academia and industry to promote technology transfer.
We have research bases in Tsukuba and Takamatsu, and contribute to health innovation in each region.
In April 2015, the Health Research Institute (HRI) was reorganized to focus research on medical and healthcare engineering.
