85+ years of innovation

Since 1937, Ambu has been rethinking solutions, together with healthcare professionals, to save lives and improve patient care. Today, millions of patients and healthcare professionals worldwide depend on the efficiency, safety and performance of our single-use endoscopy, anaesthesia and patient monitoring solutions.

We are the market leader in single-use endoscopy, a market we created in 2009 with the world’s first single-use bronchoscope, the Ambu® aScope. Today, we have expanded our presence across the four major endoscopy segments – pulmonology, ENT (ear-nose-throat), urology and, most recently, GI (gastroenterology).

We pave the way for smarter, simpler and more sustainable ways of working in healthcare.

Our DNA of innovation is tightly linked to our strong heritage of developing innovations that make a true difference in healthcare. In 1956, we invented the world’s first self-inflating resuscitator, the Ambu® Bag™, which is still in use today. It was a major milestone in emergency medical equipment and continues to be a permanent part of hospitals’ and emergency services’ product ranges world-wide.

Our commitment to our customers is unwavering. We deliver innovations that make a real difference to healthcare professionals and their patients by collaborating with leading medical experts to uncover their needs in depth. We listen, and we learn. And we translate those needs into solutions that activate the future.

At our headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark, and around the world, in Europe, North America, Latin America and the Asia Pacific, 4,600 team members keep Ambu moving forward.
