Our Story

Even our past is about our future

Since OMRON began in the 1930s, our products were developed by imagining the future, recognizing an unmet need and fulfilling it. We did not simply invent things for their own sake and hope they would sell. We filled voids that helped society move forward. Always looking ahead for the next thing people may need to live a better life before they even realize it. Humans in harmony with technological advancement.
This is what OMRON has always been about. And it is at the core of what drives us at OMRON Healthcare today. Since we invented our first digital thermometers and blood pressure monitors over 50 years ago, we have been passionate about empowering people to take charge of their health at home through precise technology. Your numbers are not just numbers. They are information about your body and its health. The more you understand, the better you can take care of yourself. The more accurate the technology, the healthier you can be. We have even taken this philosophy beyond readings and tracking into the delivery of pain relief precisely where you need it at the exact level you need. Helping improve your ability to live a healthier life is quite simply the heart and soul of our purpose. Today and well into tomorrow.
