Sharp's futuristic Health Care Support Chair - a proactive health care solution

Sharp has developed a health care support chair that combines a range of sensors for checking the user’s health. It can simultaneously record your blood pressure, temperature, body motion, and pulse waveform, storing the data in the cloud.

“When we talked to people, they often said that measuring each health indicator separately is time-consuming and bothersome. If possible, people want to obtain all their health data in one go. The equipment needed to do that is still large, but we’ve made it as compact as possible. Our idea is that people could check their health data regularly, in places they often visit, and consult a physician promptly if there’s any change.”

“We’re considering a system that enables people to videoconference with a physician if they’ve detected anything abnormal. Because the data is all saved, the physician can give suitable advice, while looking at the information the user has obtained so far.”

“Rather than people who are ill going to the doctor, our idea is for healthy people to think about how to stay healthy, prepare for any emergencies, and improve their day-to-day lifestyle.”
