Product overview

Pillsy has developed a bluetooth based smart cap to help support medicine adherence. This cap records when the bottle has been opened, relaying data through the customizable mobile smartphone app.  The adherence data also gets sent on to caregivers and loved ones via smartphone notifications and to providers to be viewed via a clinical support portal.

How it works

The Pillsy Smart Cap tracks adherence based on when medication bottles are opened and will mark the dose as “taken” if you have a scheduled dose. Pillsy Smart Cap helpfully sends reminders, beeping and blinking when it’s time to take a dose if the bottle hasn’t been opened within the scheduled dose period.  Notifications can be sent to the paitient’s phone as well as to caregivers so that they are notified if their loved one misses a dose. There is an accompanying mobile app and clinical support portal to complete the adherence support network.
