Analog sells accelerometers to Omron

May 22, 2003 – Analog Devices Inc., Norwood, Mass., is providing MEMS accelerometers to Omron Corp.’s Healthcare Business Co. for its new, portable digital blood pressure monitoring devices, according to a news release.

The iMEMS ADXL202E enables accurate tilt measurements of the user’s arm in relation to the body so the arm is positioned at the height of the heart. The accelerometer senses the angle and height of the user’s elbow and starts measurement only after the wrist is at the right position, the release said.

The accelerometers are used in Omron’s HEM-6371T wrist blood pressure monitor, which was launched last year in Japan and the United States for home medical use. Omron’s  U.S. headquarters is in Vernon Hills, Ill.
