In recent years, Japan has entered the stage of a super-aging society. As a result, the number of elderly people who need a variety of nursing care services has increased significantly. In addition, healthy seniors also need healthcare services. Our research center aims to elucidate the mechanisms of solutions formed by the combination of minerals and hot-spring water, which we called Integrated Functional Mineral Crystals (IFMCs). An increasing quantity of experimental evidence suggests that IFMCs are beneficial for improving the health status and exercise capacity of users. Our center has also been working on the development of functional sportswear and adaptive clothing for elderly persons.
