While the technology used in the Omron HBP-1600, to measure blood pressure, has been claimed as being equivalent to that used in another device, not only has no evidence has been published to show that the devices were compared according to a protocol compliant with (EU) 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4 but there is no evidence provided on a validation of the other device.
|Medaval||None||Although equivalence to another device is claimed, this has not been tested to MDR requirements.|
|Japanese Society of Hypertension||Professional use (2016-2018)||Implied equivalence to the Omron HBP-1300 (HBP-1300-E)|
Note: This is a provisional list, as equivalence according to EU Regulation 2017/745 (e.g. MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4) is not proven. Accordingly, these publications are not used in the assessment of star-ratings.

Blood Press Monit. 2018 Oct;23(5):277-80. Epub: 2018 Jul 9. doi: 10.1097/MBP.0000000000000341. PMID: 29994925.
BHS:1993 Pregnancy; Arm circumference 24 cm to 32 cm (n=36) (Note: Confusingly, the results would suggest that the device should have an A/A grade but this is not stated in the paper and no reason is provided for the omission.)
BHS:1993 Pregnancy; Arm circumference 33 cm to 43 cm (n=36) (Note: Confusingly, the device appears to pass with an A/A grade but this is not stated in the paper and no reason is provided for the omission.)
Even though the study is stated to have been carried out according to the BHS protocol, the BHS grades are omitted. Means and standard deviations are provided and the device is recommended but there is no reference as to the basis for this recommendation. These are serious anomalies that should have been resolved during the review process. Without this resolution, the hypothesis that the results are invalid cannot be rejected.
