Measurement Occurrence:
Single measurements only
Available Currently
Availability according to Countries or Regions:
The Omron HEM-6220-B is an automatic blood pressure monitor. The accuracy of its blood pressure measurement technology has yet to be proven to MDR requirements. Blood pressure measurements are taken from the wrist. It is intended for self-measurement and home use.
The technology used in the Omron HEM-6220-B, to measure blood pressure, has been compared to a clinically validated device, but the results of the equivalence study have not been published and cannot be verified; nor can the protocol be checked for compliance with (EU) 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4.
Accuracy AssessmentRecommendationBasis
BP Medaval None Although equivalence to another device is claimed, this has not been tested to MDR requirements.
BP Japanese Society of Hypertension Self-measurement (2018) Implied equivalence to the Omron RS3 (HEM-6130-E), RS6 (HEM-6221-E) or RS8 (HEM-6310F-E)
