Abstract

Japan's growing elderly population is becoming a serious problem. In addition, the ratio of elderly people who are bedridden is higher than in western countries. A range of facilities have been developed to held old people with excretion, bathing and sleeping. However, improvements can be made in all area by improving their mobility. Anybody who can walk lead an independent daily life. As a first step in this direction, we have been developing a walking rehabilitation system for elderly people, with sponsorship from the Ministry of Health and Welfare.
