Abstract: There is a recent tendency to shift from institutional rehabilitation to home rehabilitation because of the rapid aging of the Japa nese population. Therefore, transfer devices designed specifically for use in Japanese houses are ungentiy requied not only for the elderly but also for those who are severely handicapped. In this paper, a newly developed transfer device for the bathroom is de scribed. The principles behind the design are as follows: (1) Easy Operation: Elderly people themselves should be able to operate the equipment. (2) Easy Assembly: Parts should be simple enough for the family to assemble the equipment at home. (3) Easy Disassembly: when necessary, the equipment Should be able to be easily disassembled by the family at home. (4) No Remodelling of the Bathroom: The equipment should be installed without necessitating remodelling of the Bath room. (5) Cost efficienct: The construction cost should be Kept to a minimum so that the equipment can, just as wheelchairs do, receive government subsidies and become available to as many patients as possible. (6) High Safety Level: The structure should be simple and the material should be proved safe in order to avoid accidents. Experimental study of a prototype has been carried out as follows: 1) Planning: College of Medical Care and Technology, GUMMA University. 2) Design: TOKYO Metropolitan Industrial Technology Center. 3) Manufacturing: Alps Engineering Co,Ltd. 4) Field Testing: Doyukai Clinic. 5) Cost estimation: Tokyo Metropolitan Rehabilitation Center.
