This article was originally published in Start Up
PillJogger Inc.’s medication compliance solution encompasses an interactive smartphone application and a patent pending device, MedWheel, designed to dispense pills from a blister pack that fits on a smartphone body. The PillJogger app displays a virtual pillbox that lets the user know when it is time to take pills. A tap on the screen shows exactly which medications to take. The MedWheel will match up with the image on the screen, making adherence as automatic as any other daily living activity.
