We are in the midst of a profound demographic shift as increases in life expectancy - coupled with declines in fertility - have substantially shifted population demographics. According to the United Nations, individuals aged 60 and over will number approximately 1.5 billion by 2050. In Japan, the challenges of an aging population are particularly pronounced, as people over the age of 65 account for 23% of the population.

This increased number of older individuals is accompanied by increasing health concerns, presenting unique demand for the medical device industry. With rising pressure on governments, payers, and manufacturers to reduce healthcare costs, innovative medical technologies have tremendous potential to improve elder care.
