The Premier’s NSW Export Awards are designed to showcase the State’s top exporters and by doing so, promote them as role models, encouraging other businesses to strive for the same levels of success in world markets.

    “It’s such an accolade to be nominated as a finalist in the Emerging Exporter category. We’re just thrilled to be selected as a finalist in such a prestigious awards program, which does so much to promote the achievements made by Australian companies in the ever increasing export marketplace,” commented Michael Randall, Managing Director and Co-founder of Mediband.

    “With so many Australians dying each year as a result of allergic reactions, anaphylactic shock, heart attacks, incorrectly administered drugs and other preventable medical conditions, we feel sure that Mediband’s range of medical ID ‘alert’ products can go a small way to preventing deaths in Australia, but also in other countries around the world,” he added.

  • Medicine and business bands together

    What seemed like a good idea at the time has grown organically to become an all-encompassing (and still growing) business that saves lives, writes Dominique Bambino.

    Established in 2005, Mediband began in the spare bedroom of Michael Randall’s house. Like any entrepreneur, he faced some sleepless nights and drank a lot of coffee.
