Accuracy in Diagnostics since 1859
A long history of innovation from the origination of sphygmomanometers has made Accoson a leader in quality and accuracy with continued success in modern blood pressure measurements. The current range of Accoson products enjoy an excellent reputation for their quality and ease of use.
OVER 100 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
The Company was established in 1859 by Alfred Charles Cossor following a period of apprenticeship by the founder as a glass blower. Having gained a high reputation for his skills and the quality of his products, the founder was joined by his son Alfred Charles in 1875, and then by his younger son Frank in 1885.
In 1904, Accoson produced their first glass manometer, using their glass blowing skills, known as the sphygmomanometer. A year later, Russian surgeon Nikolai Korotkoff first described the technique to measure diastolic pressure.
In 1921 Frank Cossor was joined by his son Frank Gordon Cossor, and the company expanded its products to include all types of thermometers, hydrometers and syringes. Sphygmomanometers became the main product of the company, with Adrian Cossor joining the company in 1966, the fourth generation to do so.
Accoson was acquired by the HCE Medical Group in 2018 and relocated to a new premises in Irvine, Scotland. This has allowed Accoson to work closely with GM Instruments, together improving our product research and development, aided by investment from the HCE Medical Group.
