Smart Pill Bottle


AdhereTech is a healthcare firm that makes simple and effective medication adherence tools. We were approached by AdhereTech to help create the next generation of their smart pill bottle.

Development of the Smart Pill Bottle

Tapping nearly all of IPS’ engineering services and capabilities, our teams have been fully engaged in developing the second generation of the product. During the process, IPS has worked with regulatory bodies such as the FDA, FCC, and UL to help create product requirements for the bottle. Our teams work closely together with AdhereTech to refine the product which includes designing the overall electro-mechanical architecture, conducting trade studies and requirement down selection, coordinating and testing the fabrication of prototypes, implementing the design drawings, and readying documentation for transitioning the design to a manufacturing facility.

AdhereTech’s smart pill bottle is an Internet of Things device. Take a closer look at our IoT experience here.
