As the workload builds remorselessly at The Moodie Report offices in the unseasonably early run-up to the Cannes show (which takes place in September this year rather than the traditional October slot), I took more than a passing interest in new products on the market from Omron Healthcare.
At the recent ASUTIL show in Mexico the company, a leader in its field, unveiled the latest models from its blood pressure monitor range.
With the trend towards health, wellness and a growing awareness of hypertension risks and the need for home blood pressure monitoring, the digital blood pressure monitors market is growing at a faster rate than most categories, Omron said.
