☑ Contribution to the Digital Rural City State Concept and Corporate Health Management
 With this award, we hope to further deepen our collaboration with local governments and make further contributions to corporate health management in line with the Digital Rural City State Concept, a national growth strategy for the realization of new capitalism.
 ExaWizards and ExaHomeCare have conducted joint demonstrations with Sakai City, Kobe City, Miyazaki City, and most recently with Fujisawa City in Kanagawa Prefecture on a wide range of themes from nursing care prevention to medical care coordination. We will continue to leverage the power of digital technology to help create community attractions so that no one is left behind. We also hope to contribute to fostering exercise habits among older employees at companies.

☑ Satoshi Ishino, President, Exa Home Care Comments on the award
 The “CareWiz Torut” service was developed to reduce the risk of falls by visualizing the gait condition of elderly people and to provide an environment where they can live in their own homes for a long time. We are very happy to receive not only the good digital award but also the grand prize in the category. I believe that this is the result of Toruto’s daily activities based on our thoughts and feelings being highly evaluated.
 Toruto’s digital technology enables collaboration among multiple professions and caregivers based on an understanding of the gait condition. For example, by utilizing Toruto’s sharing function, the user’s condition can be shared with professionals in remote locations for feedback. Furthermore, communication based on unified indicators by Toruto can promote mutual understanding and prevent discrepancies in perception.
 We hope that “CareWiz Toruto” will help caregivers coordinate care more efficiently and more closely amid the shortage of caregivers. In the future, we intend to provide services to the general public and companies to further improve convenience.
