Welcome to careteq

A Message from Our Chairman

We are pleased to report that we have made positive progress after a recent company restructure designed to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impact and to position the company for considerable growth. This restructuring has facilitated a continued focus on our extensive product development program which complements and enhances our technology offering.

We have also focused on establishing an experienced sales team who have made immediate impact through developing and securing numerous channel and retailer partners. We have also invested in our marketing program which has included a new interactive website with a strong focus on social media & digital marketing.

Our future now provides us significant opportunity to focus on our markets to provide SOFIHUB advanced adaptive care technology gives people of all ages and abilities the freedom and confidence to live independently, while dramatically reducing their reliance on family or professional carers.

In closing, our resolve remains positive and extremely focused on achieving our key objectives and continue to build a commercially successful business.  We would again like to thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to sharing our futures successes with you.
