Xplore Technologies has secured a significant order from the Royal Australian Air Force Association, one of Western Australia’s leading aged-care providers.

Xplore Technologies specialises in high-quality rugged tablet computers. The RAAFA will receive the Motion by Xplore C5m rugged tablet computers, as well as Xplore desktop docking stations and other accessories.

The investment is designed to enhance productivity across RAAFA’s five aged-care facilities

According to the organisation, deploying Xplore’s solutions has enabled it to move administration requirements from a traditional static ‘office’ location to a mobile ‘on-the-go’ system.

“We have very strict standards to uphold, and Xplore provided the right technology solution and, just as importantly, the right installation,” says Craig Burkett, RAAFA chief information officer.

“This system eases our administration load, improves accuracy and substantially increases productivity,” he explains.

“Not only does it free staff to focus more on their core competencies in caregiving, it provides them with a sense of empowerment in the workplace doing what they were trained to do to the best of their abilities,” Burkett adds.

“Ultimately, this translates to better residential care and job satisfaction for our staff.”

Xplore Technologies adds, “By providing caregivers real-time access to patient records, they can now document conditions instantly at the point of care, whether this is at the patients’ bedsides, in the dining room, leisure area or any other location within RAAFA’s environment.”


  • Built for demanding mobile care patient environments that require robust enterprise software compatibility, the C5m rugged tablet leverages an Intel CoreTM i7 vProTM processor to deliver speed with lower energy use and extended battery life.
  • The C5m’s built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and 4G technology, along with multifactor authentication features and optional barcode scanner, is designed to make it easy to run EHR applications and send secure up-to-the-minute patient information to the entire care team without ever leaving the patient’s side.
  • The MIL-STD-810G and IP54 rated tablet is lightweight, spill resistant, drop tolerant and easily disinfected.
