Otocare’s mission is to foster a deep sense of wellbeing through the use of sound.

Otocare was founded by Yu Morishita and Hikari Sandhu from the University of Tokyo and Nick Luscombe from MSCTY, to research the use of sound recordings to improve the wellbeing of staff and patients in high-stress medical environments.

The project has since expanded into other areas of study and application
