About Us

If you are responsible for elderly, frail, or unwell people, you know how much scrutiny you are under from government agencies, accreditation bodies, staff, and residents’ families, especially in:

  • Aged Care Facilities
  • Dementia Wards
  • Nursing Homes
  • Retirement Villages
  • Hospitals
  • Independent Living & Private Home Use

It can be draining and distracting to always have one eye on your operations and one eye on the ever-changing regulatory framework and the continual raft of changes being made to minimum standards in patient care. This is where cura1 comes in, with its innovative range of devices and systems for use in:

cura1 puts you back in charge. It lets you meet and surpass current standards of duty of care, and also elevates you to a leadership position from where you will be able to demand that regulators catch up to your superior levels of care.

As well as being a leading manufacturer of these products, cura1 also provides in-house customer support and technical support through dedicated staff who are available to help resellers and customers with product application, system design and product technical support and repairs.

As you look through our product range, you will see how two decades of working in geriatric care and electronic communications has informed the innovative range of cura1 technology.

The cura1 business, office and modern warehouse facility is located at Kilkenny in South Australia and has a reseller network throughout Australia and New Zealand to provide local, on the ground, sales and support for its products.
