Association Overview

Message from the President

The environment surrounding welfare vehicles is still not conducive to optimism. In particular, there is a lack of industry-unified support programs to improve the convenience and economy of users. In addition, the setting of "industry standards and unified standards" for assistive and assistive devices for special needs vehicles has not even been called for yet.
In order to respond to these demands of the times, we need to work together.

The Disability Vehicle Association has been preparing for its establishment in order to respond to these demands of the times.
In addition to users, manufacturers, and distributors of welfare vehicles, those involved in this field are the members of the organization, and we aim to become an organization that functions to promote public welfare by gathering all wisdom.

The first step in the human resource development project is to build up promoters of welfare vehicles who stand at the interface between "welfare and nursing care" and the automobile industry.

Next, in the grant program, we are not only making donations, but we are also looking at providing support for research and development and joint projects with university laboratories.

Furthermore, we will develop measures to comply with legal regulations, including the Product Liability Law. The groundbreaking activities of the Disability Vehicle Association will be required to move toward a cross-industry business concept that no one has thought of before.
We have been implementing our activity plan, including full-scale membership recruitment, since April 2022.



The Association will contribute to the promotion of social welfare by improving the environment surrounding welfare vehicles.



The purpose of this association is to contribute to the advancement of social welfare and the sound development of the industry by working closely with the welfare vehicle industry to improve the quality of each other's work.
