Omron awarded FDA clearance for blood pressure monitor with EKG in single device for home use
12 April 2019 -

Heart health company Omron Healthcare Inc reported on Thursday the receipt of US FDA clearance for Complete, the first blood pressure monitor with EKG capability in a single device.

The company will open Complete pre-orders on 15 April in the US on for USD199.99, with retail availability expanding to Amazon beginning 1 May 2019.

According to the company, Complete is an upper arm blood pressure monitor that allows users to simultaneously monitor EKG and blood pressure readings at home. EKG readings can be measured by touching electrodes located on the top face and both sides of the monitor for easy access and comfort.

EKG is an essential measurement for those with atrial fibrillation, also known as arrythmia or Afib, which can lead to increased risk of stroke and heart failure. Complete uses an advanced new algorithm for improved detection of the possibility of Afib along with medical-grade blood pressure measurement.
