Omron HEM Solar (HEM-4500-Sole)
The technology used in the Omron HEM Solar (HEM-4500-Sole), to measure blood pressure, has failed in a clinical validation study, in a general population, according to a recognised standard protocol, as published in a peer-reviewed publication. It has also been compared to a 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.
|Medaval||None||Although equivalence to another device is claimed, this has not been tested to MDR requirements.|
