Due to personal health issues, as well as medical circumstances of the elderly in our lives, we’ve found ourselves constantly looking for better solutions for medical devices. We also wanted to leverage our passions in software development, computer engineering, and mechanical engineering to create a product that has lasting value. As a result, We created this product to solve a growing problem in the U.S., medication adherence. According to the Vintage 2015 Population Estimate, there are 48 million elderly people in the U.S., which is expected to double by 2060. Laguna hospital, a center for addiction treatment, says that ‘some elderly people take matters into their own hands by changing their dosage or finding alternatives to getting the medication they think they need.’ Combined with the fact that 60% of all seniors who take 5 or more medications say they regularly forget to take their medication, this presents a problem of inconsistent medication adherence in people of all ages, especially the elderly. This product takes existing products to a new level in the smart medical device market by incorporating modern features that are easy to use. This device is perfect for the senior population who is aging AND becoming more tech savvy. It ensures that medication is taken at the proper time, in the proper dosage.
