Omron launches new line of blood pressure monitors
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Omron Healthcare on Tuesday introduced a new line of monitors that provide even more accurate results, according to the company.
The new line captures five times more data points for a more precise reading. With more data points captured, interferences such as breathing and movement have less of an impact. Premium units include the easy wrap ComFit cuff which inflates around the entire arm to avoid incorrect positioning, and Omron’s algorithm allows for more consistency and precision.
“Studies have proven that monitoring blood pressure not only in the doctor’s office, but also at home, is vital to reducing the risk of stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure,” said Sarah Meltzer, Omron blood pressure product manager. “With more accurate readings, people can confidently take their blood pressure at home, which is an easy step to improving health conditions.”
The newest offerings from Omron make it easier for people to stay on top of their blood pressure between visits to their doctor, the company said. Suggested retail price ranges from $49.99 for its 3 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor to $99.99 for its 10 Series monitors.
