The technology and system design program at Tokyo Metropolitan University has undertaken a project intended to promote improvement in physical health of the disabled and to increase awareness about sports for the disabled as well.
1. Wheelchair-compatible musical instruments: Wheelchair instruments that can be used for recreational wheelchair sports.
We have developed wheelchair-compatible instruments that play music. The goal of studying this system is to mitigate the daily exercise limitations faced by wheelchair users as well as to promote their use.
2. Robocha Development of a device that allows everyone to enjoy Botcha together The Botcha competition is a game in which players compete against each other according to the degree of physical abilities of their competitors. All athletes use the same throwing device so that the disabled players and players with normal physical abilities can play together fairly. In this way, Robocha allows everyone to participate in as well as enjoy the Botcha competition together.
