TECHNOLOGY

KOTOBUKI Medical has succeeded in the stable DNA of “manufacturing” such as metal processing, resin processing, material technology, and equipment design that has been accumulated over 40 years by the mother company, Kotobuki Giken. We will continue to create new things that have never existed in the world, thereby creating the needs themselves and contributing to a better future of the medical field.

SUSTAINABILITY

In the field of surgery, where minimally invasive medical treatment such as robotic surgery and endoscopic surgery has become widespread and rapid technological innovation has been progressing every day, medical professionals are regularly required to respond to new technologies.
KOTOBUKI Medical has been making surgical training boxes and developing a simulated organ called VTT(Versatile Training Tissue), utilizing the cutting and designing/development technologies in millimeter units that have been accumulated since the time of Kotobuki Giken(KOTOBUKI Medical is a split-up company of it).
In the future, through the development of products that closely match the needs of the medical field, medical professionals will be able to develop and evaluate new products more efficiently, providing medical professionals with more opportunities to improve their skills.
We aim to achieve a society where everyone can face surgery with relief.
