Project Description

Our customer needed a simple as possible method for ensuring that patients are in fact taking their prescription medication each day.  It had to be so easy to operate that even a person with cognitive decline would find it simple.

The solution was simple in concept: weigh a standard weekly pill organizer and report the results to the cloud.
