1. Participants attach a Pill Connect Smart Dispenser to their bottle.
2. To dispense, participants press the button to eject 1 pill. The bottle records the date and time.
3. Data from the dispenser is read via a mobile app throughout the day, sending this onto clinical platforms for real-time adherence monitoring
4. Dispensers can be removed and attached to new bottles at refills
The dispenser records events such as dispenses and bottle swaps. This data can be read by a smartphone so that it can be sent to remote monitoring platforms.
The dispenser works with capsules size 0 to 5 and many different tablet sizes.
The dispenser fits to most standard Pharma bottles such as 33-400 and 38-400 neck finishes. If your bottle is different, we can customise the dispenser to fit to it.
Yes. A standard cap with a CRSF feature fits on top of the dispenser and the dispenser itself attaches to the screw thread of the bottle using a push and twist mechanism.
18 months in dispensing mode.
The dispenser is powered by a non-rechargeable battery that cannot be changed. During shipping, the product is in sleep mode using hardly any power at all, extending the life until it is activated by a participant attaching it to their first bottle.
We use FDA compliant food grade materials for the entire dispenser. Specific certificates will be provided on request.
