ResMed a developer, manufacturer and distributor of medical equipment for treating, diagnosing, and managing sleep-disordered breathing and other respiratory disorders, has announced the acquisition of BiancaMed, a leading Irish medical technology company.

BiancaMed sells an innovative, convenient, non-contact device for the monitoring of sleep and breathing in the home and hospital markets. The core of BiancaMed’s proprietary technology is a sensitive motion sensor that can detect respiration and movement without being connected to the human body.

ResMed, which has a long-standing relationship with BiancaMed is seeking to expand its diagnostic range and patient reach through this strategic acquisition.
