Company History
The Gilson legacy began in the 1940s, when Dr. Warren Gilson, while a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin Medical School, began to design and develop specialized medical electronics and instruments that were not commercially available. One of his first efforts produced a Cathode Ray Recorder—an 18"" moving paper camera to record images from a cathode ray tube. It was later used around the world in cardiac catheterization labs. By the early 1950s, Gilson was developing electroencephalographs, oxygraphs, and physiological recorders. In 1954, Dr. Gilson founded Gilson Medical Electronics, which became Gilson Inc. in 1967.

LEADERSHIP ROLL: Warren Gilson MD Inception-1982; Robert E. Gilson MD 1982-2006; Daniel J. Maffet 2006-2009; Ms. Atika El Sayed 2009-present.
