The new subsidiary will focus on responding to the health management needs of Indian people using OMRON's unique leading-edge technologies and products.

OMRON Healthcare Co., Ltd, a member of the OMRON Group, is the world's leading producer of digital blood pressure monitors with a 51% share of the global market, and its trusted range of healthcare products is recommended by medical professionals throughout the world.
