Korea is facing a serious low birthrate problem. Also, the health of pregnant women and babies is being threatened as the average reproductive age is increasing. Shika provides various physical/emotional healthcare for healthy childbirth using care modules and VUX contents. (The 4 care modules are leg massager, palm & wrist massager, oil massage ball, and lamaze candle.) Also, the robot enables private obstetric data managing and improves pregnant women's life quality for seven months. Meanwhile, it is run by a Government-led rental system to reach multiple users regardless of their economic level and to alleviate the domestic matter of low birthrate.
