A new form of support for "likes

While most conventional printing products are T-shirts and mugs, SYANTO can be a completely different kind of printing product. Since a smartphone is one of the items used for the longest time in a day and the badge is always visible to people due to the characteristics of SYANTO, it can be said that what you put on the badge is the best place to "express yourself".

The company's goal is to create a new form of printing that supports "likes. By purchasing and using SYANTO created by creators and designers, users (fans) can communicate "I like this" and "I am this kind of person" to others through SYANTO. At the same time, this will lead to the support of creators and designers, and a new ecosystem in the creative industry can be expected to be created.

SYANTO is the ultimate gadget to meet diversified smartphone needs

SYANTO can be used as a stand for both the in-camera and out-camera of a smartphone, regardless of its orientation. Therefore, SYANTO can be used not only as a "stand for watching" vertical video, which has become popular in recent years, but also as a "stand for taking pictures" when live-streaming or taking selfies.

In his 50s, he decided to become a body professional after studying acupuncture and moxibustion medicine and exercise science in earnest at various vocational schools and practices. After obtaining national certification in acupuncture and moxibustion, he also qualified as a personal trainer and established Akebi Sejutsu-in and Akebi School of Motion. From his own breakdowns and treatment experiences, he has come to believe that "age is just a number. Anyone can be bright, healthy, and beautiful at any time" is his motto.

■About the development of "SYANTO

Akebi School of Motion, Inc. is a company of motion researchers who use their knowledge as acupuncturists and personal trainers to provide treatment and training guidance through motion instruction.

In the development of motion products, we conducted motion research on smartphones, and then discovered and patented the importance of the bottom-most fulcrum support of the bottom surface. We believe that the bottom ring "SYANTO" developed by utilizing the patent will help many smartphone users to maintain their health.

We are also actively communicating on YouTube about the secret story of the development of SYANTO and the improvement of its operation. ( )
