Observing natural behaviour

By gaining insight of natural behavior, we understand the needs of moms and babies, patients and the professionals who dedicate themselves to their care and develop forward-thinking innovation to nurture life for generations.

Innovating Technology For Better Patient Care

By observing different types of wounds and their unique healing processes, Medela designed Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) devices with Intelligent Pressure Control and Dynamic Exudate Removal to better accommodate each wound’s particular needs for optimal healing. 

Developing Products That Work Smarter

By observing thousands of breastfeeding mothers using 3D anatomic scans of lactating breasts, Medela created our PersonalFit FLEX™ and PersonalFit™ PLUS Breast Shields with a 105° angle and unique oval shape for increased comfort, reduced pressure on the breast, and optimized milk flow resulting in 11.8% more milk when double pumping. 

Supporting The Fond Between Mom and Baby

By understanding the importance of skin-to-skin contact and its direct impact on mother-baby bonding and breast milk initiation, Medela developed a unique cut-out design for our Contact Nipple Shield to encourage more skin contact and support a strong sensory connection between mom and baby.
