They provide a new chair to prevent back pain, which can be said to be a modern social issue. Their patented moquette pressure sensor allows for posture control without compromising the design or texture of the chair. This technology is expanding new markets by collaborating with furniture manufacturers and IT companies and establishing mass production technology with manufacturing companies. The first target should be office work chairs, but they are also preparing to introduce chairs to improve production efficiency at manufacturing factories and to enter markets of games, automobiles, household chairs, etc. Furthermore, there are many applications other than chairs as thin multi-channel pressure sensors, so they are considering expanding the market. They are establishing Australia and Japan markets and are thinking about the United States market soon based on recent interviews in US companies and venture capitals and is expected to be a startup that will grow worldwide.
