Spotlight on PillClok: Taking the Guesswork out of Medication
Product designer, Fabián Vadillo, is changing the game when it comes to taking medication through his latest invention development.
In the United States, approximately 60% of people admit to forgetting to take their prescribed medication. It’s easy to get caught up in our day-to-day that we completely forget to take our medication, and given that medication is prescribed for a reason and can be ineffective if not taken to the instructions, there has to be a solution for helping us remember. Through this article, we’ll detail how the Pill Clok’s invention development has revolutionized elderly care.
Invention Development: Spotlight on the Pill Clok
Fabián is an Argentine designer who came up with the idea of a smart pillbox named PillClok. This gadget features a sleek and modern design featuring a 4 x 7 pill holder to support four daily doses of medication. With each rounded pill holder, you can configure it with the integrated joystick built into the device. The smart pillbox will then remind you to take pills at the time you set for every pill holder using the built-in speaker and backlit design.
Users can also use the snooze button to delay reminders, and also use the custom app to keep track of their medication stock in the box, reminding you to refill when needed. PillClok has multiple models, a mini version which supports one dose per day, and a portable one that fits in your palm with an integrated mechanical timer.
With Fabián’s invention development he has solved a problem that is an incredibly large issue around the world. As consumers, we’re seeing more inventors use smart technology to solve problems, like the Ovie smart food system we featured just a few weeks back. With smart technology becoming more and more popular among product designers and users, we can only expect to see more genius solutions to everyday problems.
