1998 - The first standard telemedicine blood pressure monitor was introduced into the market by A&D. The UA-767PC, an upper arm blood pressure monitor with bi-directional RS-232C with large memory was accepted in research and commercial applications on a global basis.The features and accuracy of this product became the benchmark for remote monitoring.
UA-767PC awarded US FDA 510(k) clearance.
2000 - Another breakthrough was made with a scale for weighing precise bodyweight with communication capability. The UC-321P, a 50g resolution with a maximum capacity of 150kg added another vital tool for recording patient’s weight from a remote setting.
These two product solutions have enabled health care providers gain access to critical health information at anytime – vital for effective chronic disease state management.
2003 – CE Mark received on (UA-767PC and UC-321)
2005 - A&D announces yet another breakthrough in telemedicine to broaden patient access and take convenience to the next level with the introduction of wireless communication.
