Total solutions in the field

Life Care
Supporting personal lifestyles
As well as adult diapers, LiveDo Corporation various products for home care, nursing facilities and hospitals.
Taking the customer’s viewpoint, we support transformation in the medical field.
Owing both to rapid population aging and to changes in disease structure and an evolving healthcare environment, year-by-year national medical expenditure has been increasing. In Japan, the medical insurance system and hospital management have entered a phase of transformation. Closely collaborating with healthcare professionals, LiveDo is committed to providing products and services that support safe and secure hospital management.


Our precursor company, Toyo Eiseizai Co., Ltd. was established on April 1, 1965 to manufacture disposable diapers and related sanitary products. Since then, the company has been active in the healthcare sector.

Responding to changes in the business environment, while establishing a second pillar of business support, the company started making disposable  medical products and, on April 1, 2002, was renamed LiveDo Corporation.

The name LiveDo (Live+Do) represents our aspiration, by helping people to actively get on with their daily lives, to become a company that ’supports the power of life’.

So as to better serve our customers, the change in corporate name reflected our commitment to improve management quality and support nursing and healthcare transformation. Besides designing Refré and other innovative brands, we have worked with healthcare professionals to actively support the transformation of the medical industry.

Going beyond nursing care and wider medical care, as a company that ’supports the power of life’, we address various social issues in our effort to help people to realize healthy and active lives.
