Quietest Breast Pump

Noise tests show that Calypso is the quietest breastpump!

The Calypso is the quietest of all tested electric breastpumps. In comparison with many other commercially available pumps, it is only perceived to be half as loud, but it is still powerful.

See for yourself how quiet the Calypso is compared to the other pumps tested.

“Vacuum Seal” Technology

The silicone membrane pot integrated into the Pumpset is at the heart of our “Vacuum Seal” Technology.

This technology ensures that there is a total barrier between the breast milk and any pathogenic agents. “Vacuum Seal” guarantees protection of the breast, breast milk and the pump against contamination. Components such as the silicone tubing do not have to be boiled/sterilized before use. Mothers will also not have milk in the tubing or in the breastpump.

Actively Promoting Breastfeeding

Our Mission: We Actively Promote Breastfeeding

We are committed to an integrated, holistic approach to a good cause – breastfeeding!

What that means for us. Babies must receive precious breast milk for as long as possible. What is our role? The establishment of a framework for mothers, professionals and Breastfeeding support organizations in order to optimize conditions and support.

What can we do? We contribute our expertise, the individual concepts and our unique products to the cause. We are pleased to work with you to achieve our common goals.

The WHO Code of Marketing of Breast-Milk Substitutes

As a producer and distributor of breastfeeding aids, Ardo medical AG supports the practice of breastfeeding with products of the highest quality and functionality. With our breastfeeding products, we offer solutions to breastfeeding difficulties and treat breastfeeding in a holistic and effective manner. Uncompromising compliance with the WHO Code is therefore a fundamental principle for us as an international company.

The international WHO Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes was introduced to protect the practice of breastfeeding. It governs the advertising of breast milk substitutes, feeding bottles and teats, reducing illness and death rates among babies around the world and making a vital contribution to lowering costs in the healthcare sector.

That is why Ardo medical AG makes a conscious effort to follow the WHO Code and does not promote feeding bottles. We wish to declare clearly and unequivocally that we are committed to our company policy, which observes the WHO Code in its entirety and subscribes to it without compromise.
