At Co., Ltd.

We are extending our business in Japan and abroad with our unique capillary blood flow observation equipment.

Our company manufactures and sells the Kekkan Bijin capillary blood flow observation device, which we developed independently. We have sold about 400 units. Our main customers are a drugstore chain, the health insurance society of a major automobile manufacturer, and the merchandise development department of a major sanitary company. We also provide our product to medical institutions. We sell our product in Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong and we are also accelerating sales promotion in China. We have conducted joint research with the Osaka University Faculty of Medicine, the Chiba University Center for Preventive Medical Science, and Shiseikan University. Our company has won patents for our capillary blood flow observation device and capillary analysis system.

[Company strength]
No other inspection and observation equipment easily acquires vital data as-is from the human body in a non-invasive manner. A low-cost microscope is used as hardware to acquire very fine capillary vessel images. Other companies cannot imitate this technology because it is patented. Our system to digitize the acquired images is based on special algorithms achieved in joint research with the Osaka University Faculty of Medicine. There are no competitors for these technologies from the software aspect as well.
(1) History of hardware development: We developed the Kekkan Bijin capillary vessel observation device ourselves, and have been selling the product since 2003 while making improvements. In 2015 we will market the computer-linked Capillary Analysis System (CAS).
(2) Development of image processing algorithms and systems: We have developed capillary condition digitizing algorithms and systems, infrared ray and finger vein authentication algorithms, image clarification and contour extraction algorithms, and medical image diagnosis algorithms. We have also developed automatic continuous image processing and volume analysis systems. 
We also possess many unique high-level image processing technologies. All software programs for these technologies are created from scratch in the C language without using any external libraries. These programs are thus unique (black box characteristics) and advantageous for installation in products. Our vessel-related analysis know-how using visible light and infrared rays are particularly unrivaled. We collaborate with many universities and medical institutions. This is why we can establish a research system and also apply the latest medical image diagnosis technologies and easily obtain clinical data.


[Business description]
Our mainline business is to manufacture and sell the Kekkan Bijin capillary blood flow observation device. Our company has sold about 400 units since our establishment in 2009 (about 2,000 units if our former company’s sales are included). Our main customers are medical institutions, a drugstore chain, the health insurance society of a major automobile manufacturer, and the merchandise development department of a major sanitary company. The merchandise development department of a major sanitary company is using the product to evaluate the effects of their products. We attend exhibitions and academic society meetings to promote product sales. We are also conducting joint research with the Osaka University Faculty of Medicine to commercialize our next-term product (capillary status digitizing system).

[Strength of products/technologies]
We have accumulated more than 1,000 capillary vessel images and observed the capillary vessels of more than 20,000 people to find relationships with lifestyles and digitize capillary vessel images. This unique know-how for analyzing capillary vessel images is the technical foundation of our business. Our company was selected for the Osaka City Grants to Create Innovation in October 2013. We started joint research on capillary vessel digitization with Associate Professor Naomasa Kawaguchi at the Osaka University Faculty of Medicine in November of the same year. As the result of this research we succeeded in binarizing capillary vessel images in February 2014, which had been the greatest issue to solve for digitizing capillary vessel images. We developed a capillary vessel digitizing system with these algorithms in August 2014.

[Representative's message]
I have also been developing Chinese sales channels by using my own experience of studying in Shanghai for two years and residing and working in Hong Kong for three years. We will develop overseas sales channels for the capillary vessel imaging system we developed jointly with Osaka University. This system will be sold with advanced health materials that impart good changes to capillary vessels and blood flow. We have acquired clinical data regarding these points in Japan.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We are ready to support customers in Chinese and English. We periodically visit exhibitions in China.
