Higashikawa Town is a town with a population of approximately 8,000 people located in the center of Hokkaido, characterized by its rich forest resources and outstanding natural scenery. Due to the natural environment such as Mt. Daisetsu and the improvement of the living environment, there are many immigrants, and the number of people has increased by more than 1,000 over the past 20 years. In Higashimachi, there were issues such as a sluggish rate of health checkup
participation, and while the number of female participants in conditioning courses was on the rise, the participation rate of men over 70 in health courses was low.

In order to solve these issues, we are promoting the “Smart Through Health Promotion” initiative, in which townspeople become more health-conscious on their own by understanding their own health status, practicing daily exercise, and participating in health events, and all generations work to maintain their health on a daily basis. As part of the “Life Business”, NTT
We have introduced PARAVITA’s sleep improvement service “Sleep Support Team”.

By providing services that help visualize sleep and review lifestyle habits, we aim to create a town where residents can live healthy and vibrant lives.

Higashikawa Town offers a conditioning approach to improve the life performance of all residents. In the “smart life business through health promotion” offered this time, NTT
PARAVITA’s latest ICT technology allows you to visualize your sleep and help improve your lifestyle habits. We aim to enable townspeople to independently achieve healthy lifestyles and to enable all generations to live full of vitality.

Since PARAVITA was established as a joint venture between NTT West Japan and Paramount Bed in July 2021, it has improved the sleep of over 4,000 people.
The obvious things like getting a good night’s sleep and living a healthy life can lead to solving important issues in local
communities, such as reducing medical and nursing care costs and promoting health management. By providing the “Sleep Support Team” to Higashikawa Town, we will help extend the healthy life expectancy of the town’s residents by promoting local health and early detection of pre-symptomatic conditions.
