A Message from the President
As used to be, no optimism is warranted on the environments surrounding the welfare vehicles. In particular, industry-wide support programs are deficient. In addition, even a rallying cry for the introduction of “Industry -wide Standards/Uniform Criteria” for assistive/care equipment has not been heard under the existing circum stances.
In response to the demand of the time, JAPAN WHEELCHIR-ACCESSIBLE ASSOCIATION has endeavored to make arrangements for its establishment. It aims to become an organization to function as an advocate for the furtherance of public welfare, bringing together the wisdom from all people involved as constituent members of the area, including the users, manufacturers, and distributors of the welfare vehicles.
For human resources development programs, the Association intends to create a promulgator of welfare vehicles based on the interface boundary of “Welfare/Care” and “Automobile Industries” as the initial step in this effort.
In the subsequent fostering programs, the Association will involve not only with the contribution act but also with the R&D assistance from a multilateral perspective including the projects carried on cooperatively with university labs.
Furthermore, measures to response to the legal restrictions such as PL (Product Liability) laws are to be developed and implemented adequately. Toward the industry-traversing project concept so far nobody has given a serious consideration, an epoch-making fortitude of activity by JAPAN WELFARE VEHICLE ASSOCIATION is being eagerly sought after. Action plans including the recruitment of new members have been enforced since April, 2008.
