On September 17, Konami Sports Club Hachioji's OyZ School, fitness programs for senior citizens, was registered as the first "Hachioji City Longevity Support Company." Konami Sports will actively contribute to Hachioji City's efforts in creating a multilayered system to support the elderly.
Konami Sports has developed and provided numerus services for seniors based on its expertise amassed over decades of sports instruction.
In particular "OyZ," fitness programs for senior citizens introduced as an advanced case study in "Examples of services not covered by public long-term care insurance toward construction of the community-based integrated care system" jointly developed by 3 Japanese Ministries (METI, MHLW and MAFF,) offer safe and effective programs supervised by physical therapists and fitness trainers and has been well received by participants.
In February 2018, an agreement was signed with Toyoake City, Aichi Prefecture, to create and promote services not covered by public insurance, such as extending the healthy life expectancy of the elderly and supporting their lifestyles. We have supported the health of local residents through introduction of exercise programs such as "Locomo Fit" and "Locomo Core" to prevent locomotive syndrome.
In September 2019, we were also commissioned by Soka City, Saitama Prefecture, to start a class for the elderly to prevent dementia by combining music therapy and exercise as part of the city's 2019 General Preventive Care Projects.
We will continue to provide health services to extend the healthy life expectancy of local residents while responding to the demands of the local government.
This system is designed for businesses and organizations within Hachioji City to make services for elder citizens visible so that they can choose and utilize these services for themselves. It aims for preventive care and to help people remain active into their golden years by encouraging the use of these endorced services through announcement via the city.
Konami Sports will continue to support local governments in the field of health promotion by resolving issues such as preventive care for the elderly by providing services such as exercise programs for seniors.
