Research and Development

The Toyobo Corporate Research Center (in Shiga Prefecture) and the Tsuruga Plant (in Fukui Prefecture) maintain close contact with each department in the Company as they carry out the day-to-day research and development of BREATHAIR®.

At the Comfort Engineering Center at the Corporate Research Center, the degree of comfort for sitting or lying on BREATHAIR® is given a rating on a numerical scale and prototypes under development are evaluated for their comfort.
