Next Corporation has plans to introduce “WARATTERU”, a wearable device for the elderly.
Yukai Engineering Inc is responsible for design, planning, and development.
In addition to being able to log a user’s sensations related to laughter and conversational state, the device can also notify distant family of coughs or shocks.
The log tracking laughter and communication can clearly show that the person is living a healthy life.
Furthermore, the ability to detect coughs or shocks can be used as a predictor of illness or falls.
