Business developments of medical devices in Japan and Asia

Thanks to this unique structure and history of the company, we have strong ties with research facilities, researchers and distributors not only in Japan but also overseas. By effectively utilizing these networks, we collect information on cutting-edge technologies and medical devices from around the world, and if we judge the product is highly useful, we will start negotiations with the manufacturer from an early stage. We not only aim to achieve a quick launch in Japan, but also expand the scope to Asia.
Cardio Inc. will handle obtaining market approval for medical devices that are beneficial for patients, even if other import and sales companies hesitate to do so because of regulatory difficulties.
