The Pilloxa One has 14 pill compartments that paitient’s treatments are placed in. Each compartment has two key techincal enhancements that make Pilloxa unique- first, an LED illuminates the pills in the compartment that are to be taken, and second, sensors use light to confirm when the pills have been removed from the compartment. This infomation is automatically sent to the patient facing app and the program managers web interface where the data can be seen in real time. The Pilloxa one is wireless, connecting via bluetooth. The pill box needs to be recharged every 3-4 days.
How it works
Pilloxa One is a smart pillbox that can be connected to a smart device to track medicine adherence. The pillbox has embedded tablet sensors that connect to an app where patient data and adherence information is displayed in real-time on a dashboard. Patients are notified when it’s time to take their medication, reminded if they forget, and their progress is tracked in realtime. Pilloxa One is currently utilized for clinical trials- it is tailor-made for each trail to ensure that the unique needs of each trial are met.
