Journey of our founders.

Storing and carrying medication became a common practice for Helen and Sarah due to their personal experiences. Helen's son was born with a congenital heart defect, asthma, and anaphylaxis, while Sarah had premature twins, one of whom suffered severe brain damage from a rare medical condition.

Drawing from their respective backgrounds in public health and design, Helen and Sarah took on the challenge of addressing the lack of suitable products in the market. Their collaborative effort led to the creation of a specialized bag designed to hold medication. This bag was thoughtfully labeled and provided dedicated space for action plans and essential emergency information.

The inception of MedBag dates back to 2012 when Helen and Sarah transformed a casual conversation into a tangible idea. Through sketches, prototypes, rigorous manufacturing trials, and numerous iterations, they crafted the first MedBag. Their meticulous approach stemmed from a deep personal understanding of the exact requirements such bags needed to fulfill, given their own needs.

Helen and Sarah are immensely proud of the range offered by MedBag. Their aspiration is to alleviate some of the stress associated with managing medical conditions for everyone who embarks on a similar journey.

MedBag's reach extends to schools, kindergartens, daycares, and educational institutions across Australia and the world. The company also collaborates with entities that share a commitment to secure medication storage. In addition to the original MedBag product line, the company offers a selection of exceptional products developed locally and internationally, all aimed at enhancing the safety of your family.
