Origin Story.

How did we get here?


Ad Astra Medical Devices, LLC was founded to commercialize the proprietary technology that the National Institue of Aviation Research (NIAR) and Wichita State University (WSU) developed in response to requests from the Medical community when supply chains became short of critical equipment.

The Team

The founding team of Ad Astra Medical Devices is a group of Midwesterners who believe in the motto “Ad astra per aspera” which translates to the stars through difficulties. Through the difficult global COVID-19 pandemic innovation was sparked which the Ad Astra MD team is using to fuel their drive to reach for a better state.
