An innumerable number of buildings in the coastal part of the east side of Japan were devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. Medical institutions also suffered the damage caused by tsunami, and the function to carry out the medical act has been spoiled. And the disabled concentrated on the medical institution which avoided tsunami damage. Under such circumstances, assistance from the water area began three days after the earthquake disaster, and much support supplies reached the stricken area. It was revealed that the support from the water area including the river was extremely effective against the stricken area.And then, the Tokyo Inland Earthquake disaster was assumed, floating medical support system installed in the quay of Arakawa River in Tokyo was proposed. Floating medical support system is movable; furthermore, it is built in the structural system of having very high isolation characteristics. Therefore, feasibility study such as selection of suitable setting position of this floating structure on Arakawa River, floor planning and flow planning at the time of always and a disaster, facilities and storage of various material,structural strength of the floating base, and the effects of disaster risk reduction was carried out about floating medical support system.
