The Red Dot award winner has a microchip that tracks and manages the user’s prescribed medicine intake, sending notifications in cases of overdose.
Cambridge-based TinyLogics received the Red Dot award for its design of an app- and Bluetooth-enabled pillbox that reminds users when they should take their medication.
The Memo Box Mini may be small, but it packs a big brain. It fits in any pocket, measuring only 35x66x15mm. Despite the small size, the pillbox features three sections where medicine can be stored. With a microchip embedded on the hinge, the unit can track and record the user’s medicine intake, specifically which medicine he takes, at what time and how often.
Aside from this, the smart pillbox can be paired with a mobile phone to which the unit can send notifications to remind users when it is time for them to take their medicines. It also prevents overdose when it detects that a medication has been taken more than usual in a day.
GPS-enabled, the pillbox can be programmed to send alerts if the user leaves a preset location without the unit. It is made of PP and equipped with a li-ion battery that provides power for one month.
Debuting on Kickstarter, the Memo Box Mini has since earned more than twice its £8,000, approximately $10,000, goal. Shipping starts on March 2017.
