For a fulfilling life extending “from inside to outside,” and a society where people can live healthy and secure lives
Based on the motto “From inside to outside,” Molten Corporation aims to help people live a fulfilling life extending “from inside to outside,” and to create a society where people can live healthy and secure lives. To fulfill this mission, Molten manufactures and sells a wide variety of products that are needed in healthcare and welfare settings, ranging from handrails to be installed on floors of homes that assist people with walking, and robotic mattresses for intensive care units. Among them, a particularly noteworthy product is “Oscar,” a highly functional air mattress. This mattress has a function that automatically helps change the position of the body in the bed to prevent bedsores and contractures. The application of hollow-body technology enables the mattress to move slowly to change the posture of the patient in a similar manner to a care-giver. This reduces the burden of care-givers at night, thereby reducing sleep deprivation in both care-receivers and care-givers. For this reason, the product is widely used in various settings, from hospital care to home-based care.
An increasing number of bed-ridden elderly patients and a shortage of professional caregivers due to the decreasing number of children have become serious issues in Japan today. To solve these problems, promote welfare, and secure healthy lives, products and services that assist not only care-receivers but also care-givers are needed.
