Entrusted by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) beginning in the 2011 fiscal year as a research development theme, Iwate Prefecture University developed the Android application for smart phones which offers Deaf/deaf persons support by the "advanced registration type household-noises discernment system using an Android terminal".

Based on this result, interested members invested, establishing an incorporated company called "Clear Fix" on May 23, 2013.

The product, an indoor signal apparatus, which supports a Deaf/deaf person is equipment which changes household noises, such as a chime of the door, a FAX ringer tone, and a fire alarm, into light or sound and tells the Deaf/deaf user.

This time the research team enabled the product to identify sounds even in a noisy place with original acoustic treatment technology in real time with a smart phone.
