Message from RepresentativeMessage

Japan Medical Device Corporation was established on November 16th, 2020, independently by PIA Co., Ltd for Class 1 medical device marketing and sales.
We are working on developing the business of new medical devices based on medical device marketing know-how cultivated in PIA, as well as the leading-edge technology of the heart simulator.

The heart simulator was developed on a supercomputer by the University of Tokyo and Fujitsu Limited over a period of more than 10 years. Both advanced modeling technology covering the organ level to the molecule level, and ultra high-speed computing technology have made it possible to reproduce human organs in the virtual space.

With this technology, we plan to develop and provide several medical services as follows:
  • Replace invasive medical inspection procedures for patients
  • Support doctors to decide method of difficult operations
  • Predict the effect of treatment after the operation
  • Recognize the condition of small blood vessels
We will expand our business aiming for worldwide improvement of the quality of life for humans.

This business consists of three organizations as key players: the University of Tokyo, Fujitsu and PIA. I believe my mission is to provide the heart simulator as excellent technology for the world by linking these three organizations. I feel confident in my mission as I have belonged to these three organizations (refer to my career description below).

I commit my life to achieving the purpose of this business. In addition, strong minded and trusted colleagues have gathered. Please refer to their introductions.

This business is based on great social significance. Your heart will be virtually reproduced prior to the diagnosis and treatment for you to understand your heart condition, and the effect of the treatment will be predicted. We would like to create an unprecedented digital medical world as mentioned above.
