Comments I specialize in dental prosthodontics and geriatric dentistry. In particular, I am involved in clinical research on oral function rehabilitation in the elderly. I belong to the oral implant department at Hiroshima university hospital, and I am also involved in the evaluation and rehabilitation of patients with dysphagia in the mastication and swallowing outpatient department. We have developed new evaluation methods and rehabilitation methods for eating and swallowing disorders, and have helped to develop a tongue pressure measuring device (TPM-01, JMS, Hiroshima) and easy-to-eat bread (Raku Raku Bread, Takaki Bakery Co. Ltd., Hiroshima). I am doing my best in my research to support the people who have difficulty eating due to illness or injury can "oral intake in a fun and safe way until the end of their lives". ͒
