OUR MISSION

smartphone+otoscope.jpeg

Our goal is to revolutionise healthcare. And make a profound difference to people’s lives through the work we do, by improving healthcare outcomes.

How? By refreshing legacy technology, and developing smart medical devices and apps which allow you to remotely capture, share and communicate important medical data. Whether it’s through email, text or dedicated health service, it’s in your hands. Driven by data and powered by people, we complement third-party services, but never compete with them.

Paul+Julian-Cupris.jpg

Cupris was founded by Jules Hamann, a consultant ENT surgeon, and Paul Thomas, an award winning designer and entrepreneur. They teamed up because of their interest in developing medical devices that use innovative technology to improve healthcare communication, allowing patients and specialists to be more informed.

It all began when Jules started becoming overwhelmed with the volume of unnecessary referrals he was receiving. He soon realised that a high proportion of his patients could easily be cared for without coming to see him in person.

So, our organisation was founded on the belief that with smart technology, patient examinations can happen closer to the patient’s home, and away from already overcrowded hospitals. Together, Jules and Paul believe that the future of healthcare lies in providing equal access to patients, so they can be treated quickly and simply, wherever they are.
