Ito has supported top athletes around the world in various sports such as soccer, judo and swimming. Here we will introduce one example of these efforts, from the World Judo Championships held in Osaka in 2003.
2003 World Judo Championships
Dates: September 11-14, 2003
Location: Osaka-jo Hall
At the World Judo Championships, Ito Body Care Rooms were provided by the sponsors in the separate waiting rooms for men and women contestants. Modern treatment devices such as stimulation current units, ultrasound devices, and thermal devices were installed, in order to provide the best system for maintaining athletes' conditions.
By the end of the tournament, a total of more than 300 trainers and athletes had used our treatment devices.
Among the products we provided to these Body Care Rooms, our ultrasound devices in particular were highly regarded. Since most of the athletes and trainers cared for using our ultrasound products remarked on the superiority of the products for treatment, our products were highly regarded once again.
In judo, both athletes and trainers make every effort to keep injury and fatigue to a minimum and to maintain the best condition possible until victory. Our staff also gave their best efforts to cooperate in supporting these goals. Ito will continue to support athletes in the future.
