The Innovative Long Term Care: DINSOW Robot Serves in Japan and EU
Since first established CT Asia Robotics in 2009, the founder’s vision was to create value from using Robot to assist elderly has never lost the focus. Realizing the serious life quality of Aging people, CT Asia Robotics places its market positioning to innovate possible technology into Robot and slowly penetrate to start market awareness as well as educate the users to adopt technology into future life. First launch Dinsow Mini for elderly successfully made in 2014 in Japan. This brought more confidence in moving forward into higher and higher smart technology to help elderly. Currently, we have so many international prospects approach us every day. CT Asia Robotics has well collaborated with many Thailand leading universities and other Research Labs to work on innovation that could plug into Dinsow Robot. With strong support from National Science and Technology Development Agency, our R&D projects have higher chances to make it possible. Through a difficult experience so far, I found that we have many valuable human resources; smart inventors, researchers but less opportunity to shine the bright. Now there are good news that the Thai Government shows very positive in pushing up these talents to grow up the country especially on Science & Technology savvy. But of course, we still need more start –of –the-art laboratory, Testing, standardize program to upgrade commercialize scale. It might take another few years to cover all missing necessary functions. So we all need to start it now and speed it. Let the Synergy pull us together and build a healthy Aging Society.
