Every person including the elders who rely on medication for a long period of time may sometimes forget their routine.
But now, with this tracking style may help them to even be on time when they’re taking their medicines. In fact this PillDrill consists of a hub that resembles a cute-looking alarm clock, a couple of weekly pill strips that contains RFID pods, a dozen of an alphabetical RFID tags for bottles, a mood dice and a mobile app.
The system will notify both the patient and the family members or caretakers through the hub’s flashing light and beeping sound via the app or SMS.
With the mood dice, they can just place or log their feelings at any time. It has five faces — great, good, OK, bad and awful that can be logged onto the RFID scanning area.
The idea of PillDrill came from Peter Havas, formerly of Specialty’s Cafe & Bakery fame. His mother was using Fitbit to monitor his mother’s recovery from two hip surgeries which inspired him to develop a system that could do the same for monitoring medication intake.
Havas’s PillDrill is available for $199 and will be shipping to North America and if it will goes well, his team may expand into other regions.
