ResMed expands research facility
DUBLIN – ResMed plans to add 50 new jobs to its research, development and innovation facility, according to reports. The IDA Ireland-investment allows ResMed, a developer and manufacturer of medical sleep and respiratory devices, to broaden its existing operation based at University College Dublin. The new jobs will facilitate development of a technology platform based on non-contact sensors designed to manage patients in their homes. In May, ResMed partnered with Omron Healthcare to launch a wireless sleep-monitoring device in Japan, using technology from BiancaMed, which it acquired in 2011.
