Product / Service Information
Target customers range from wheelchair-dependent persons at great risk of pressure wounds and injury (especially that 25% who haven’t yet found safe sitting solutions), to the elderly and less active, to everyone who sits or stands for protracted periods in vehicles, office chairs, workstations, etc. and experiences discomfort, numbness and pain. The pandemic has brought increasing awareness of health concerns worsened by sedentary lifestyles (where Vigurus now identify concerns like “sitting disease”). The exceptional performance of Sp1ke™ products in improving blood/oxygen circulation, posture, balance, safety and comfort fit perfectly with emerging interest and requirements. Regular consumers and those with special needs are more than ever seeking peer-endorsed self-directed solutions to their lifestyle needs as online-buying-savvy, new-age consumers who are postured to find better products from around the world.

Objectives at Medical Japan Tokyo 2022
The market benefits to foreign companies selling into Japan, in particular within the medical devices segment, are well-publicized. Astutely serving the growing needs of aging populations throughout Asia for safety, comfort and health support is an excellent match for Vigurus’s technology. Aside from finding distributors, wholesale and/or retail markets for its self-branded products, Vigurus is keenly interested in finding unique opportunities to supply proprietary best-of-breed components using Sp1ke™ technology for a multitude of different manufacturers and product marketers/integrators throughout the region. 

Some areas of interest include: support surfaces for all types of mobility aids from electric scooters to rollators; anti-fatigue and impact mitigation flooring for commercial, industrial and institutional environments; insoles into shoe brands or as standalone products using our North American brand partners or unique white label opportunities within Japan and Korea; sports and policing protection equipment; bicycle seats; mattress and toppers for hospitals, commercial, residential, and marine applications; and various other components or stand alone goods in the hospital and elder care segments, etc.
