Video recording now available: 2023 Aged Care Innovators: Brenna, Embrayse and Lenexa Medical

Updated 12th October: A recording of this session is at the foot of the story.

In the session, our panellist Jeannie-Marie Noyce mentioned an upcoming event that she is hosting in Adelaide on October 24 – Australian Aged Care Innovators, Network and Learn Event – Co-design In Aged Care – To attend.

In an update to this earlier invitation, we’ve added a couple of new panellists who will be able to share further information about their journey as graduates of the University of Melbourne BioDesign Innovation course, where they met and later decided to found Lenexa Medical and the LenexaCARE system.

The LenexaCARE patient monitoring system aims to address the 300,000 annual pressure injuries in Australia. The technology was recognised in last year’s Future of Ageing Awards – awarded highly commended in the Technology – Business category.

In our next live session, we’ll be speaking with relatively new suppliers delivering innovative solutions in the context of aged care services. Our discussion will centre on the valuable insights acquired during their business launches, offering learnings to fellow entrepreneurs on how to effectively engage potential customers, establish integration partnerships, and distinguish their offerings.

We’ll also hear about the improvements and outcomes these entrepreneurs are helping to deliver and the feedback they are receiving from providers. Join the conversation and register today!

In light of the session’s theme, we are extending an invitation to one more panellist who believes they have a unique perspective to share as a rapidly emerging business. If this sounds like you, please email us at, with an overview of what you can bring to the discussion.
