Pill Bottle, AdhereTech Smart Pill Bottle

This is a Pill bottle. It was designed by Intelligent Product Solutions and firm: AdhereTech. It is dated 2016. Its medium is plastic, various electronic, computing, and cellular components.

Among the most common reasons people do not take prescribed medication are: failure to remember timing, to take proper doses, or to refill prescriptions. AdhereTech's smart, wireless pill bottles use sensor and cellular technologies to remind people to take pills. If doses are missed, the system sends gentle reminders to users or caregivers, such as customized text messages, phone calls, and/or on-bottle lights and chimes.
