Omron Digital Blood Pressure Monitors
Omron blood pressure monitors are just one product in a huge range of products which are produced by the Omron Corporation today.
Omron began its life more than 70 years ago when Kazuma Tateisa, a brilliant inventor and a very determined salesman whose first inventions included a trouser press and a knife grinder, founded the Tateisi Electric Manufacturing Company in 1933 to meet the needs of hospitals for better and faster X-Ray timers.
Today the original 3 man company has grown into a global business based in Kyoto, Japan and employs nearly 34,000 people, either directly or as world-wide affiliates, and enjoys net sales in the region of US$6 billion.
Today Omron Corporation develops and manufactures equipment in a number of different field including industrial automation, automotive electronics, electronic components, social business systems and healthcare.
During its long history the company has seen many firsts including the automatic traffic signal, a fully automated train station system and automatic cancer cell diagnostic equipment and has made a considerable contribution in the fields of industrial automation, the development of home and office technology, the advancement of social and financial systems and, of course, healthcare.
Within its healthcare division Omron not only produces digital blood pressure monitors, but also manufactures digital thermometers, pedometers, body-fat analyzers, fitness equipment and much more. In addition, it produces a range of healthcare equipment not simply aimed at the consumer market but designed for use with medical facilities. These include a range of nebulizers and professional digital blood pressure monitors.
Omron is certainly not the only company producing blood pressure monitors today but Omron digital blood pressure monitors and widely agreed to be among the best in the world.
