Pilldrop / Smart Pill Dispenser for Elderly Aging in Place


Pilldrop is a smart pill dispenser that manages medication and integrates it seamlessly into daily life – not just when a patient needs it, but when they are nearby and more likely to take it. The variable discs can organize complex regimens and the ergonomic cup allows the correct medication to be easily taken without physical difficulties, mistakes, or loss of pills. If a dose is missed or forgotten, family members and caregivers receive a notification – allowing them to check in on their loved ones, ensuring good health and well-being for patients and peace of mind for those responsible for their care.
