In healthcare, it is directly applying the treatment to the human body which cautions is critical. As technology advanced, Smart medical equipment has already pushed forward medical techniques and lowered the medical risks. However, healthcare is not only within hospitals but also in patients' daily basis. In this case, what can we do? What if a membrane pressure sensor is integrated within the medication containers and makes it a smart device? It can assist the user to accomplish full treatment without professionals. Membrane pressure sensors are thin, lightweight, and small. It can be integrated within limited spaces and is also portable. Let's see below how can pressure sensors integrated within medication containers benefits all!





In healthcare management, correctly taking medication as doctor's order is truly important. People usually forgot to take their medicine or cannot remember when is the last they have them. This may lead to interrupting dosage daily timeframe and affect overall treatment. Making a medication container smart device via pressure sensor can sense whether or not the medicine is withdrawn and notify the user when the user should take the next dosage. Additionally, smart medication containers can notify users to refill when needed with pressure variation monitoring.





In daily life, sometimes taking medication may not only for illness but can be vitamins or supplements for overall wellness, and of course general pain killer or medicine for stomach, too. Those medications are not taken very often, which may lead to a common concern of users may not remember how long have the medicine been stored. Using expired medicine, may not help with the symptom but also cause harm to the body. With medication stacking on the pressure sensor, it systematically records its storing date and helps the user to track its storing history and expiration.





Additionally, smart medication containers can also benefit caretakers and doctors. For some users, daily dosage may include different medications and every medication may have different time frames. It can remind the caretaker accordingly. Doctors can also monitor treatment remotely and give notifications or other instructions.



Comparing now and then, medical technology and techniques have already improved tremendously. It is about a person's health and body. Although there are already professional personnel and advanced equipment, patients' afterward self-treatment is also important. IoT medication containers can help both doctors and users track treatment seamlessly and optimize overall therapy. Additionally, these implementations do not only for illness treatment and also for general use for household medication and supplement tracking. After all, any kind of medication is consumed into a person's body, effectively management is very important.
