December 8, 2010
 

  NEDO participated in Care & Rehabilitation Expo China 2010 held in Beijing from December 3 to 5, 2010. NEDO booth at the Expo introduced the representative 4 results from NEDO's project to support the promotion of R&D on practical welfare equipment by private companies, including a wearable robotics suit to reduce burdens of caregivers as well as a three-wheeled mobility scooter for wheelchair users. NEDO's exhibits also included panels introducing other welfare equipment and NEDO's R&D efforts for welfare equipment and other technologies.

  This was NEDO's very first participation in an overseas exhibition in the field of welfare equipment technologies, aiming to directly hear the voices from China's welfare personnel and equipment end users as well as to publicize "secure and safe" Japan brand welfare equipment supported by Japan's advanced technology.

  During this 3-day exhibition, more than 10,000 people including caregivers, care recipients and personnel from welfare institutions visited NEDO booth, thus indicating high-interest for NEDO's welfare equipment R&D activities.
