Major field:Medical equipment

Miner field:Beauty and Health care

Development and production of the carbon dioxide therapy equipment


Scientists of Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine founded this company on April 8, 2010 to develop the first “artificial Bohr effect” generator that delivers pure carbon dioxide transdermally into the muscle depth. The use of carbon dioxide to enhance muscle force was internationally applied under PCT and patented in Japan on December 4, 2009. The generator can work not only as a medical device, but also as a beauty care and a healthcare device.

Product / Service / PR

    The “artificial Bohr effect” generator increases blood flow and oxygen release from haemoglobin . We found that it enhances not only muscle-training effect but also muscle force even without muscle training in human and animals. The generator changes muscle fiber type from IIb (un-trained) to IId and IIa (trained and well-trained) without muscle training. This change is associated with an increase in mitochondria quantity and activity, which leads to an activation of lipid metabolism.
