Automatically tracking children’s medication
Supporting parents with their children’s medication management.
Working with parents, we explored the reality and challenges of administering over the counter oral medication to children. We identified pain points and focused on medical device solutions that didn’t require changes to behaviour or existing hardware. We developed a tiny low-cost sensing solution that automatically tracks when and how much drug has been administered. An accompanying app presents the key information to the user at a glance.
Using our medical device development expertise, we delivered a simple, intuitive, award-winning medication tracker that enhances the user experience and helps avoid medication errors. A connected syringe sends data to a smart phone app and presents parents with information about dosage, frequency and time to next dose. The working prototype hardware and iOS application was delivered in 5 weeks.
