Established an integrated system for development, manufacturing, sales, and maintenance of medical equipment.
Now advancing more needs-driven development, such as ultra-fine rigid endoscopes.

In July 2023, we have concentrated the medical business resources in our Group, including personnel and technology, into Air Water Medical Inc. Positioning it as a core company in the medical business, we have built an integrated structure from development to manufacturing, sales, and maintenance in order to enhance our manufacture’s capabilities. It allowed us to better capture various needs of the medical field. Working with the Healthcare Development Center and the Healthcare Imaging Division, we continue to create products such as the ultra-fine rigid endoscope that was jointly developed with Keio University.
