METI hosted the subsidy program for elderly care facilities with installation of robotic devices in the previous fiscal year. The program supported companies to develop and socially implement robotic devices that could be used for priority development areas in the field of long-term care. CYBERDYNE participated in this subsidy program to develop HAL Lumbar Type for Care Support for use in the priority development area of “wearable transfer aid” and led to the productization of the device.
