MEDIROM Announces Its First Order of MOTHER, World’s First Self Charging Activity Tracker, from a Medical Institution. Entry into $34 Billion Japanese Medical and Nursing Care Market*.


    MEDIROM, which operates over 300 salons nationwide under Re.Ra.Ku brands and others (Head office: Tokyo, Japan), is pleased to announce that it has received an order for the MOTHER wearable tracker from Kansai Medical University Hospital (Headquartered in Hirakata, Osaka, Japan).

    Since the product announcement at CES 2020, the world’s largest technology conference held in Las Vegas, MOTHER has received considerable domestic and international attention as a health and activity tracker for user management across fitness companies and for employee health management across private companies.

    MEDIROM has received numerous inquiries from the medical sector, including rehabilitation centers, medical institutions, pharmaceutical companies and nursing homes. And now we are pleased to announce that we have received a planned order from Kansai Medical University Hospital for our debut self-charging device – MOTHER – the first of its kind in the medical field. (Due to the impact of the global COVID-19 outbreak, stabilizing the production line has become an issue. For this reason, we have not set a delivery date and take provisional orders for the time being.)

    MOTHER is the world’s first activity tracker (wearable band) that uses body heat to generate electricity, through Thermoelectric technology, thus creating a perpetual self-charging machine and enabling the device to record user’s activity, sleep length and quality, calorie consumption and other biometrics without ever needing an external charge hub. In addition, to facilitate data extraction, gathering and analysis from the end users of the device, Mother’s SDK will be provided to 3rd party (partner companies).
