A new device to manage a person’s prescription drug regime is currently in development from Solo Technology Holdings.
The iKeyp is a personal safe that can hold up to eight pill bottles protected with an individualized four to eight-digit passcode keypad. This device allows someone to keep their medication any place besides a typical bathroom medicine cabinet. However, there is a physical key for the safe someone could use if they forget their passcode.
The safe is connected to the Internet via a mobile app to go along with the iKeyp. This app, which works on mobile and table devices on both iOS and Android platforms, provides adherence reminders to those who want the app to keep track of their prescription. That includes the use of text or emails to a person, or even to other people they want to share the information with.
The app can also send out an alert if someone tries to access the device. These alerts include if a correct or incorrect code is entered, if the door remains open, if there is a theft/tamper detection, the wi-fi signal strength, and if there is a low battery issue.
As of right now, the iKeyp is not for sale and is anticipated to be unveiled in the fall through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. For more information, check out the product’s web site.
