Nihon Kohden was established in 1951 by Dr Yoshio Ogino who developed the world’s first electroencephalograph (EEG) that was completely AC powered. Since then, the company has broadened its product range to include a variety of high technology medical equipment, such as patient monitors, electrocardiographs (ECGs), defibrillators, automated external defibrillators (AEDs), haematology analysers and other physiological measuring equipment and sensors. The company claims to be Japan's leading maker of EEGs, patient monitors, AEDs and medical electronic equipment.

Nihon Kohden also enters into strategic business relationships with international manufacturers of medical equipment to distribute their products. Its range of imported equipment includes cardiology, urology, respiratory care, anaesthesiology, emergency care, sports medicine and rehabilitation devices.

In November 2012, Nihon Kohden established a wholly-owned subsidiary, Resuscitation Solution, in the US. The company increased the capital of Resuscitation Solution to finance the acquisition of Defibtech, a US manufacturer of resuscitation equipment, which closed in November 2012. Defibtech became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Resuscitation Solution by means of a cash merger with a special purpose company established by Resuscitation Solution as the extinct company, and Defibtech as the surviving company.

The Nihon Kohden Medical Device Company Report provides a full review of the company's medical device activities, from its origins to its latest corporate activity, including mergers and acquisitions, agreements, divestitures and litigation. Sections are also included on products, corporate strategy and R&D.
