If you ever have been seriously ill or had some kind of surgery, you know that between the antibiotics and the pain killers plus the rest of the medications, it may be a little overwhelming to keep track of what's needed next. But fear no more, technology is closing the gap to make your life easier.

Glow Cap
This cap can be fitted to any standard prescription bottle, flashes and even plays a ringtone when is time to take a dose. If a patient misses those alarms, it sends a signal to a wall socket mounted unit, which has the system that will call the patient's phone with a pre recorded message. The system also send reports to family members or even the doctor. To top it off, it can even contact the pharmacy when it running empty and order the refills for you. Who needs a nurse anymore?

MedReady Pill Dispenser
MedReady conveniently utilizes AC power, but in the event of an outtage or short-term travel, switches automatically to included rechargeable batteries. It is tamper-proof to provide the maximum in security. Instead of employing a latch, our system utilizes a real lock and key, and the edges are secure. With access by key-only, caregivers can load MedReady and monitor patient compliance. The extra large LED read-out is easily viewed from any angle and is self-illuminating so it can be seen in any light. The system provides a card holder on the bottom of the unit for a printed copy of the prescriptions for all medications in the dispenser.
