The world has seen an increase in innovation bubbles globally with new inventions arising ever so often. Technology has become an indispensable part of everyday life, and not many mature adults understand how easier life becomes because of it. There are plenty of innovations that help mature adults cope with their health amongst other factors, and it can even help them to connect with loved ones overseas. Here are some technologies for your loved ones to try out.
Hero Pill Dispenser
Hero is a digital pill dispenser that helps to ensure your loved ones are consuming their medications on time every day. It can hold up to 10 prescriptions of any size and shape and can be customized to fit any medication schedule. Hero pill dispensers can store a medication supply of up to 90 days, but this depends on the sizes of the pills. There is also an application that connects to the device to track consumption and doses. You can teach your loved ones how to navigate and manage the app, or you can help them with it as well. A caveat about this technology would be that it does not work for half pills, dissoluble pills that are sticky, or gummies due to risks of contamination. Notifications will be given when the supply is low, and it has a service called Hero Fill that delivers prescriptions and other medication to your doorstep with free shipping. There is a free trial period of 30 days, and a 24/7 support system.
