Reminders for patients from smart pills

Reminders for patients from smart pills
Proteus Digital Health has introduced recently a digital health feedback system called Helius that includes a small sensor patch worn on the body, 1 mm sensor-enabled pills and an integrated software/smartphone app package. Most of the patients who forget their medication can make use of this smart sensor pills. The pill with an embedded chip when swallowed (at the same time as their daily medications) gets activated by stomach acids and sends an ultra-low-power electrical signal to the patch. The sensor patch, in turn records the date and time of ingestion, along with metrics, such as heart rate, activity and respiratory rate, and sends an SMS to both patient and physician if the user forgets to take a pill.
