Founded in 1942, Ameda is the result of the groundbreaking work of Swedish engineer Einar Egnell, who made it his life's work to help breastfeeding mothers. After years of research he created the first comfortable and effective breast pump that mimicked the sucking rhythm of nursing infants; he also created the vacuum and cycling standards that lactation professionals use to judge breast pump quality. Today the company combines Egnell's technology with innovative features the modern mother has come to expect; Ameda is the leading innovator, delivering unmatched quality and service to lactation professionals, institutions and mothers worldwide. The product line includes electric breastpumps and breastpump sets and related nursing and feeding aids including disposable nursing pads, silicone diaphragms, washable breast pads, custom breast flanges, breast pump car adapters, breast pumping accessory kits, manual breast pumps, nursing bras, breast milk storage solutions and more.
