Japan’s Fujitsu Laboratories has developed the world’s first wearable, hands-free speech translation device, which could be suitable for industries where the users’ hands are often occupied, such as in diagnoses or treatment in healthcare. With an increase in the number of visitors to Japan has come a hike in non-Japanese speaking patients going to hospitals, creating issues in understanding communication in multiple languages. After conducting research into the matter, Fujitsu Laboratories discovered that, because there are many situations in which healthcare providers have their hands full such as when providing care in a hospital ward, there was a need for a wearable speech translation device that could be used without being physically touched.
