What is IVES?
Message from CEO
“Japan can produce world-class medical equipment.”
With the passion of founder, Iwao Okuda, "Japan should be able to produce world-class medical equipment", OG Electric Medical Equipment Laboratory, the predecessor of OG Giken, was established in 1949.
In 1966, OG Giken Corporation was established, and in 2015, under the brand "OG Wellness," the company began the challenge of realizing a society where people are active throughout their lives.
We deliver our products and services through an integrated system of R&D, manufacturing, sales, and maintenance, and are committed to manufacturing that meets the needs of our customers.
"Wellness and Smiles Beyond."
As a comprehensive manufacturer of medical, nursing, and rehabilitation equipment, our goal is to realize a society where people are active throughout their lives. As the aging of the population is no longer just a problem for Japan, we continue to make efforts and take on challenges so that our customers around the world can spend their days lively with smiles with our products.
In 1950, OG Giken's first product, a low-frequency treatment device, was born. Later, in the era of motorization, we launched Japan's first "electric intermittent traction therapy device" as a treatment device for whiplash. The Chair-in-Bath, which was developed in conjunction with the arrival of an aging society, has attracted attention from the public as an innovative bathing device that allows people to take a bath while in a wheelchair. The reason we have been able to create products that are in tune with the changing times is because our founder, Iwao Okuda, a former engineer, values his passion for manufacturing. By advocating "Technology First" as our management philosophy, we pass this idea on to our employees.
