Codex Innovations is an engineering start-up based in Newcastle innovating in the medical and sustainable engineering fields. We seek novel ways to solve problems through fresh insights and perspectives regarding new technologies, systems and devices.

The founding of the company was inspired by our main project endeavour –commercialising a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) to protect frontline health workers (especially amidst the Covid-19 pandemic). Alongside this, we are currently working on other medtech devices as well as other solutions in the sustainable space. Our team consists of multi-discipline engineers who regularly engage in all phases of product design including research, development, testing and production processes.

At our early company stage, we have already enjoyed wins for local challenges including first place in the University of Newcastle’s (UON) Start It Up and a minor winner in Samsung’s Solve For Tomorrow Competitions.

We aim to continue to facilitate industrial experience, gain access to grants, build connections within industry and ultimately produce innovative products that will make individuals’ lives better.
