Smart Pill Bottle Multifunctional by Intelligent Product Solutions

Home > Winners > #48818


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Smart Pill Bottle

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional

INSPIRATION:
The Smart Pill Bottle addresses the major problem of medication adherence in the healthcare sector. Our motive was to design a product that could seamlessly fit into patients lives without causing any disruption in the current workflow but also improving medication adherence for the betterment of patients and caregivers.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Smart Pill Bottle is a personal medical device leveraging Internet of Things technologies that accurately senses dosage intake by patients. Caregivers and providers oversee scheduling and the device both assists and monitors patient activity. Other adherence tools require complicated new workflows and set up and usually don not fit seamlessly into patients lives. The smart pill bottle works right out of the box with zero setup and nothing new for patients to learn.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Visual and audible alerts on the bottle provide notification before medication is to be taken, and built-in sensors detect when a patient is accessing their medication. Feedback is sent via a cellular network where it can be analyzed and acted upon in real-time. If the data indicates a dose has not been taken in a timely fashion, an alert is sent to the patient and/or caregiver(s) via a series of customizable reminders. Eliminating overdosing and missed treatments, the device provides a way for caregivers and loved ones to easily track and be more effective in ensuring a patient’s adherence.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2014 in New York and finished September 2015 in New York.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Scientific Instruments, Medical Devices and Research Equipment Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This design is intended to not garner attention, directly reflecting the needs of the user. Patients with severe illnesses prefer a subtle and reliable solution so they can have a better experience inside of their illness. The degree of internal rigor and testing proved this product to be a highly reliable one that can live in extreme environments. This design intention follows through to the manufacturing floor where manufacturers find several beneficial features of the product including a minimal number of parts needed to build the product, ease of assembly and self-aligning abilities, small amount of interconnections, poke yoke design, and regulatory-compliant material.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The bottle is 60.2mm wide by 60.2mm deep by 106.0 mm high. The cap is 60.2mm in diameter by 17.7mm high. The bottle with cap is 60.2mm wide by 60.2mm deep by 111.1 mm high.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
UX tradeoff studies charted design, development, and mapping product lifecycle to ensure appropriate interaction for all users. Research showed product appearance had to be sufficiently mundane to avoid looking outsized while also maintaining the appearance of a common pill bottle and minimizing all other interactions. This affected product aesthetic/size; the bottle had to fit in all traditional places pill bottles are stored - cabinets and purses. New design had a major impact on development. The bottle had to store the medication in an isolated medically compliant volume while housing multiple electrical components.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to create a power efficient design within the constraints imposed by the bottle’s size/shape. The bottle’s rechargeable battery needed to exceed a patient’s subscription timeframe and its anticipated shelf life. We selected power efficient components and developed smart algorithms that allow the product to have a battery life of more than six months.
