AdhereTech offers medication adherence solutions through connected devices, messaging services, smartphone applications, and intelligent data collection and analysis. The smart pill bottles offer SMS/Phone/Email reminders and non-adherence feedback. The amount of medication administered is tracked in real-time and wirelessly transmitted and stored in the cloud through HIPAA-compliant methods.
The AdhereTech “smart” pill bottle project challenged IPS to design a product containing hardware PCB’s, an antenna, LED’s and a rechargeable battery in a very small package while meeting FCC radio regulatory requirements. The IoT pill bottle does not require patient setup; there is no software to load and nothing to configure. The product works as soon as the patient brings it home.
Next-generation design, incorporating:
- Cellular radio
- Custom battery
- Improved sensor
- Miniaturized design
- New processor and software
- New visual alert feature
1:2 volume reduction from prototype was achieved via clever packaging and layout techniques.
