The medical eqipment has advanced dramatically for the last dozen years or so and has much contributed to improve and promote people's health and life.  Amid the aging society to where many countries in the world including Japan are moving, further advancement and development in medical technologies are much expected.  Nowadays thanks to the development of new treatment methods and advanced surgical instsruments methods of surgical operation and treatment have made significant progress.  However, the development of medical devices and equipment needs not only technical capability but also various factors in order to lead to safe clinical application.  Furthermore, for the practical use both extensive experience and know-how in the world are necessary.

In Japan particularly there are many companies who have high technology and are able to enter medical equipment sector by applying their technology.  However, regrettably they lack in experience and know-how for putting their technology and development into commercial production safely and efficiently.

The medical administration system of each country makes it hard for medical lindustry to enter the foreign market.  Medical service including medical devices is a driving force of economic growth led by the Japanese government.
