How Omron Sleep Design Works
ResMed and BiancaMed
ResMed is a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of systems to diagnose, treat and manage sleep-disordered breathing, a serious health condition in which people experience breathing issues during sleep ranging from simple snoring to periods of completely obstructed breathing, known as sleep apnea. As such, ResMed recognizes that sleep monitoring represents a huge market opportunity globally, part of an increasing recognition of the impact of disturbed sleep on numerous important health issues, including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and more, as well as an increasing trend toward proactive, preventative health care models.
The need for convenient, cost-effective screening and monitoring solutions continues to grow as economic pressures are causing governments and insurance providers worldwide to focus on cost savings and therapeutic efficacy in both the diagnosis and treatment of health disorders. ResMed’s acquisition of BiancaMed in 2011 serves this need two-fold: by providing a simple screening solution, and by providing novel alternatives for monitoring across multiple disease categories, such as heart failure, diabetes and more.
BiancaMed: Omron’s "All for Healthcare"
Toward this goal, Omron Healthcare has established its "All for Healthcare" strategy. The company’s mission is to develop health monitoring products and health support services for the home. With products like Omron Sleep Design, the objective is to continue challenging lifestyle diseases in the future, helping people achieve healthy, comfortable lives. "We look forward to continued collaboration with Omron, as well as working with new global health care partners on innovations that advance sleep medicine, and improve health and quality of lives," Dr. Hanley added.
