Remembering when to take your different medications and vitamins can be a daunting task. Taking the wrong medications or too many prescription pills could be life threatening. In the United States alone not taking medications as prescribed is responsible for around 125,000 deaths a year.
Pillsy is the latest innovation to curb health problems caused by the wrongful use of medications. The smart pill bottle keeps track of your daily doses and aids you with your pill-talking routing. Pillsy works with a Bluetooth 4.0 radio, an open and close sensor, and a battery.
The smart bottle senses when the pill bottle is opened and closed, it alerts you via SMS, notification or a phone call when you’ve forgotten to take your doses. It also tracks the remaining pills, notifying you when it’s time for a refill. All this is monitored with a smartphone app.
You will also be able to monitor a loved one’s doses and get weekly reports. The app also syncs a nutrient report to Apple Health when taking vitamins. Pillsy will help you get into the habit of taking your vitamins and minerals or remind you to take your prescription which would be a lifesaver for people who lead a busy lifestyle.
Pillsy is available for pre-order here.
