In response to the severe labor shortages now being faced by the nursing care industry, OMUTSU-TECH and aba, two startup companies making their first appearance at JFlex, will display flexible IoT devices designed to ease the burden of continence care for the nursing care industry. Based on a flexible sensor developed using printing technology, OMUTSU-TECH will exhibit a low-cost, next-generation diaper sensor that relieves discomfort when worn. As part of a solution to reduce the burden and increase the quality of nursing care, aba will demonstrate their Helppad continence care system that detects urine and feces using an odor sensor. On the second day of the event, Thursday, January 30th, JFlex will host a health care seminar during which Future Ink, a venture business launched by Yamagata University, will discuss the commercialization and social implementation of a bed sensor that monitors pulse waves, breathing, and sleep in an unassuming manner.

During the event, numerous elastic films, inks, inkjet devices, and other flexible hybrid electronic products and technologies will be on display. Visit the event to experience the “now” of the flexible devices that are changing how we live.
