LAP Co., Ltd.

Rehabilitation support instrument development and sales

We conduct development and sales of instruments that support rehabilitation of joint movement for those suffering from hemiplegia, “Power Assist Hand” for those who have hand and finger paralysis, and “Power Assist Leg” for those who have ankle paralysis. We are currently developing “Power Assist Suit” that builds up the physical strength of care staff. The “Power Assist Hand” implements safe and soft motions utilizing air pressure. The “Power Assist Leg” ensures a range of motion in which dorsiflexion and plantarflexion are combined so as to allow the toes to rise. This allows rehabilitation at home not at hospitals and dedicated facilities, different from conventional rehabilitation assisting apparatus. We are participating in a nursing-care robot society implementation construction project.

[Company strength]
The “Power Assist Hand” implements safe and soft motions because bellows repeat contraction and expansion by utilizing air pressure. We have implemented such actions as touching, holding, and grasping an object by mounting the “Power Assist Hand” on the back of the hand, different from similar existing products. The “Power Assist Hand” using air pressure, not a motor, as a power source, causes less possible danger during any abnormal motion of the device. The “Power Assist Leg” ensures a range of motion in which dorsiflexion and plantarflexion are combined so as to allow the toes to rise. This allows rehabilitation at home not at hospitals and dedicated facilities, different from conventional rehabilitation assisting apparatus.

[Representative's message]
There are approximately 1.3 million patients with cerebral infarction and other related diseases in Japan. However, these patients are in difficult situations regarding rehabilitation following discharge from hospital due to the shortage of supporting staff. Our “Power Assist Hand” is an instrument that allows the patient himself/herself to assist rehabilitation of a hand and fingers. The “Power Assist Hand” with a soft motion using air pressure as a power source is being utilized at home without worry.


[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Customers can experience our products in Shonan Robocare Center, Robot Experience Facilities in Kanagawa Prefecture, housing display parks, facilities and shops of rehabilitation day-care services. We will develop our business to allow those who need our products to use our products, by widely conducting cost reductions based on mass production and rental business. This will result in our products being widely known to patients, families of patients, and medical staff.
