Remembering to take medication at preset intervals can become a laborious task when more than one tablet needs to be taken on a daily basis. To help make the process of keeping track of daily medications easier a team of developers based in Hong Kong has created the Pillgo smart pillbox.
Using a companion application to which the Pillgo is connected using Bluetooth 4.0 technology the system is capable of allowing you to track your medications in real time as well as receiving reminders when you need to take medication to make sure you are taking the correct pill at the right time. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about Pillgo which has launched via Indiegogo this week and is now available to back with earlybird pledges available from $42.
If the crowdfunding campaign is successful and manufacturing progresses smoothly worldwide shipping of the new smart pillbox is expected to commence during August 2019. Features of Pillgo include :
– Integrates your biometrics with medication data
– Provides allergy and drug-drug interaction alerts
– Sorts your pills by medication time or by medicine type
– Smart pill information input using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) System
– Motivates your medication journey through Pillgoal
“Pillgo is a smart pill box for individuals and/or caregivers. What makes Pillgo smart is the capability to integrate user’s biometrics with medication data for health status monitoring, and provide potential drug allergy advice to reduce the chance of getting side effects. The Pillgo team conducted numerous research studies, consulted various focus groups, and analyzed many survey results to understand real-life issues experienced by users to gain insight into the difficulties of medicine schedule adherence.
