We have developed image analysis software for medical treatment in which symptoms are detected from images.
We conduct R&D of image analysis software, and specifically of cell images and medical images obtained by microscopes. We can provide comprehensive support for statistically analyzing large amounts of images, and to detect various symptoms. We can also support functions that are difficult to handle with ordinary image processing. We develop technology for three-dimensional image processing such as three-dimensional extraction from medical images, 3D tracking of the human body, and projection mapping.

The individually extracted time-varying parameters range over several tens of types. There is also a function for analyzing and graphically displaying these parameters. Using these parameters makes it possible to conduct screening of candidate materials for medicine. This is done by using many images that are obtained for cell changes caused by candidate compounds for medicine manufacturing. The major functions of our cell image analysis software are as follows. Cell image analysis software (Windows/Mac) Cell and part extraction function Time series tracking function Feature quantity extraction function Analysis macro programming function Video output function Image analysis display system (Windows/Mac) Overlap display of analysis results Function for time-varying comparison of time-series images Function for creating various graphs
[Company strength] We participated in the East Kyushu Medical Valley Initiative, which was designated as a specific district in Oita and Miyazaki prefectures. We have already established a joint R&D organization that takes the image processing and medical points of view into consideration. One of our strengths is that we can carry out flexible system proposals according to the customer’s needs. [Business description] Our company offers system consulting, development and sales of packaged software, development of custom-made software, Internet connection support, and dispatching of software engineers. Our products include total systems for long-term care insurance, proprietary home systems, comprehensive rehabilitation systems, and fitness management systems. We offer furniture sales management systems and work assignment systems. We develop iPhone/iPad applications, and provide system development services, image analysis systems, and website construction. We also offer consulting for ISO certification acquisition, SE dispatching services, and sales of recycled printer toner. [Industry] Software development [Strength of products/technologies] Image analysis is a key technology, and we can provide these services at a low cost by making effective use of our abundant accumulation of image processing technology R&D experience. We can already support functions such as contour extraction, individual tracking, cell shape characteristics, and fluorescence localization in cell image analysis. These are difficult to handle with ordinary image processing. We also conduct technology development from the early stage on three-dimensional image processing such as three-dimensional extraction from medical images, 3D tracking of the human body, and projection mapping. [Representative's message] Our company was founded in 1985 according to Oita Prefecture’s software industries promotion policy, which it actively promoted prior to other prefectures. We are now developing businesses from system engineer dispatching services to the development and sales of nursing care and rehabilitation systems. We are further expanding our business to medical image processing. Our corporate philosophy since our foundation has been “We make systems that contribute to society.” We have supported the East Kyushu Medical Valley Initiative. We hope to expand our business from Oita to a wide range of overseas locations, and specifically to countries in Asia. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Our staff in charge of image processing in our systems department will be the point of contact for inquiries and technical consultations from major companies and overseas companies. They will directly visit the customer if necessary and make proposals on the customer’s problems and issues. Our president directly takes charge of business support with our customers, and offers sincere support for overseas customers together with our technical staff.
