Our Medical Business
The importance of staying healthy by monitoring your vital signs is well recognized and practiced in households worldwide today. When you visit your physician, you will have your blood pressure and body temperature measured, and body weight taken. To monitor your vital signs is recommended by physicians as "preventive medicine". With advancements in technology, you can become very involved in your own care enabling early feedback necessary to receive prompt and effective health examination and treatment.
A&D has been serving the healthcare community and the home-health care market by providing monitoring equipment for measuring vital signs, specifically blood pressure. We started promoting medical devices in 1979 with an innovative "digital blood pressure monitor for the home". In those days, home monitoring was uncommon. Without the technology, healthcare professionals were the source of blood pressure measurements. They listened to the sound of blood flowing in the artery to determine the patient's systolic and diastolic values.
Personal Blood Pressure Monitors
A&D has made monitoring blood pressure at home a reality with new technology and with more portable innovation; measurements can be taken almost anywhere. In 1984, extensive research and development refined our oscillometric technology to make home blood pressure monitoring commonplace. This oscillometric method, a new computer aided microphone-free system, became the standard method for monitoring blood pressure digitally at home.
We are proud to be in a unique position in the healthcare market. As leaders in blood pressure technology we expanded our professional medical product line in the late 1980's. Starting with an ambulatory blood pressure monitor, our medical product line offerings became widely supported by healthcare professionals and researchers around the world. Current models in our professional line of monitors include; ambulatory blood pressure monitors, bedside monitors, and fully automatic monitors addressing many needs. Product line expansion with the highest quality standards is our company mission.
