Alcuris is an award-winning healthcare technology start-up.

The company mission is to research and develop integrated technological solutions for the global healthcare industry. It brings together medical professionals, carers, and patients to enhance care and quality of life.

When Alex’s grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he witnessed his mother’s relationship with his grandfather change from father-daughter, to patient-carer. Alex knew that technology could help.

The company’s first product range, Memo, aims to prolong independence, provide reassurance and produce actionable data.

It will alleviate the growing demand on health services by monitoring medical adherence and well-being, and form a comprehensive package which will evolve into an integrated technology healthcare platform based around the emerging Internet of Things philosophy.

Doopa is the company’s second product. A mobile platform, it connects those looking for domiciliary care with local carers.

The platform offers reviews of individual carers, allowing families to make informed decisions. It also provides a visit booking system, a log of care session activity, and an efficient way to manage payment.

Alcuris is looking to develop links with partners who can help scale their operations across the board, from technology and manufacturing to market reach and other related health sectors.

Every day I get to learn something new, work with incredible people, and achieve something that I really care about. I can’t imagine doing anything different!
