|Nintendo: From games to health care?|
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed during a second quarter fiscal briefing that the device will be a collaboration between Nintendo and the U.S. company ResMed, a global manufacturer of sleep disorder treatments, that will map fatigue of the user.
"Since fatigue per se is not regarded as a disease in the medical world, it is said to be a field where sufficient research has yet to be conducted." Iwata-san continues, "we have been fortunate to encounter several experts who have been conducting cutting-edge research in the science of fatigue. Together, we are now developing technology to estimate fatigue."
