Agetech refers to technology that enhances the inclusiveness and wellbeing of aging societies. In addition to the medical and nursing care fields, we also target technologies related to age-friendly urban environments and lifestyles such as preventive healthcare and financial fields such as housing, mobility, and fintech.

Basically, it refers to technology and innovation that contribute to healthy aging as defined in the 2nd edition of the SDGs adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, "Decade of Healthy Aging 2021-2030: Decade of Healthy Aging." Please refer to the Decade of Healyhy Aging button below for more information.) Japan has a higher aging rate and acceleration than other countries (the highest aging rate and acceleration in the world), so not only the elderly but also their families and local communities Research and innovation that can be applied to people, children, pregnant women, and people with some kind of disability are also subject to review. Even if the current product is not marketed specifically to seniors, it may be targeted to seniors where necessary and available.


​Since when has the Wellbeing & Age Tech Awards been held, and what kind of technologies are judged?

This award has been held since last year. Many people in Japan think of nursing care when they think of age-tech, and most of the applications last year were about technology related to nursing care.


The subject of the examination is not only nursing care, but of course medical and nursing care, age-friendly living environments, for example, monitoring sensors are also age-tech, self-driving, MaaS, mobility, etc. The means of transportation are also age-tech.


For example, if something happens to you, such as a disaster, a traffic accident, or a sudden illness such as cerebral infarction, you and your family will need information (blood transfusion if you need it) Age-tech also includes apps that store information such as type, past medical history, treatment methods, electronic medical record information, and family doctor information. Science and technology aiming to improve menopausal disorders, femtech that can determine the number of remaining eggs, and materials that allow wheelchairs and walking aids to move smoothly while minimizing the impact when falling over, for the environment of housing and urban development. Science, technology and innovation are also included in age tech and well-being tech. There is a market map of Agetech, so please see the following examination targets.


Most age-tech is not only for the elderly, but also for their families, communities, children, pregnant women, people with some kind of disability, for example, those who are recovering from an accident, so it is useful only for the elderly. Rather than things, it generally refers to things to enhance the inclusiveness and well-being of a super-aging society.
