This sensored prescription bottle continuously monitors prescription drug usage to ensure the proper rate of consumption, improving patient outcomes. Monitoring data is directly uploaded to the cloud after each bottle usage, with sensor sensitivity capable of measuring a fraction of a single pill weight. The device’s form factor and appearance are that of a typical prescription bottle, with miniaturized electronics in the base of the bottle supporting >60-day prescription for most pill types.
Pivot took over design control of the device, making updates to resolve sensor performance and system reliability issues to allow acceptable functionality for the customer’s use case. We updated the cell modem and antenna designs to support next-generation technology, allowing improved data connectivity and battery life. Pivot transferred production control of the device, significantly improving manufacturing efficiencies, yields, and DHR compliance.
