Tokyo Midtown Tower 4F Conference
11/22 (Fri) 15:30 - 17:00

The dissemination of digital fabrication devices such as 3D printers enable us the creative micro inventions to adapt various individual needs. In this session, together with the people in the field of healthcare practice and manufacturing, we explore the possibility of FabNurse as a new health ecosystem. We discuss the following topics: what the process should be to realize the tools and accessories which fit the body and environment of each patient, how the consensus about safety assurance and product responsibility should be made among the stakeholders, and how we can develop the human resources who can take the roles of creation of tools and accessories that meet the individual care needs.
