Liquid Design Systems Inc.,

We develop monitoring smartphone apps that record respiration rates during sleep

We develop and market an IoT monitoring system, which uses our proprietary vital sensors and an iPhone healthcare app to record respiration rates during sleep. The system can also record real-time sleep states, including when people get in and out of bed and body movements, and store the readings in the cloud. The sleep states of up to four people can be displayed simultaneously on one iPad. We are currently developing an IoT baby monitor that will record the respiration of infants during sleep to counter sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). We are looking for partners to develop products using our vital sensors to advance further into the healthcare and beauty care fields.

Sales Pitch

Baby Sensors for Nursery Schools - IBUKI PLUS
IBUKI PLUS, which are baby sensors for nursery schools are designed in a way that a baby only needs to lie on a sensor mat for you to be able to monitor the baby's breathing without touching its body. If the breathing rate become abnormal, the sensor gives off an alert. The special-purpose iPad app can be connected with Bluetooth to enable you to monitor the breathing condition of up to six babies on a remote basis within a distance of 10 m.
This special-purpose app has been developed as a support tool for alleviating the physical and mental burden on childcare-givers by checking the state of naps and breathing of babies and infants conducted every five (or 10 or 15) minutes at child-rearing facilities. These sensors are not medical equipment but do allow you to check the breathing status of children on a remote basis, thereby mainly helping to reduce the mental burden on care-givers.

Other presentation

[Company strength]
The vital sensors that we developed independently detect vital signs (respiration, pulse rate, body movements) as well as skin tension. As an application of this technology, we developed a resonance skin massage device that uses air and is based on a skin quality sensor. We are looking for partners to develop products using our vital sensors. More specifically, we can either provide a license for commercialization technology at the prototype product level or participate in a joint development project.



[Business description]
We develop and market an IoT monitoring system, which uses our proprietary vital sensors and an iPhone healthcare app to record respiration rates during sleep. Besides respiration rates, the system can also record real-time sleep states, including when people get in and out of bed and body movements, and store the readings in the cloud. Also, because the system can simultaneously display the sleep states of up to four people on one iPad, it is well suited for shared rooms in hospitals and other facilities. We are currently developing an IoT baby monitor that will record the respiration of infants during sleep to counter sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).



[Industry]
IoT and healthcare device development

[Representative's message]
Over the last year, and through conversations with Apple Japan, we have created a product that records respiration rates during sleep using an iPhone healthcare app. Although the product is finished, we are currently at a standstill at the volume production barrier. In the meantime, we have seen similar products come out of China, so we are convinced of the potential of turning our product into a consumer product. This is why we definitely want to partner with a company that can assist us with volume production, preferably within the year.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We are pushing our sales centered on a licensing business: we license our technology to partner companies, which in turn greatly reduces development times and accelerates market entry for companies planning to enter a market. More to the point, we want to add IoT functionality to healthcare products and collaborate with sales and service companies and companies planning new businesses. This will enable us to roll out IoT products to the world as fast as possible that will help on the nursing frontlines and in daycare centers. We have already completed a license agreement with a company in the nursing field. We are currently looking for partners for smart bedding and other consumer products.
