Our Story

Ventora Medical was born out of the Stanford-inspired BioDesign Innovation program at the University of Melbourne, where co-founders Edward Buijs, Alan Haszard and Amy Yu were brought together from the Melbourne School of Engineering and Melbourne Business School.

Driven by customer needs, Ventora Medical prides itself on obtaining an intimate understanding of both the healthcare professional and patient perspectives. This deep understanding of the problem allows Ventora to develop innovative solutions to improve patient care.

Our passion for helping premature babies breathe is what drives Ventora Medical to succeed as we endeavour to empower clinicians through innovation.
