The Blixter, as the name indicates, is a standard blister, covered with a layer of electronic filaments connected to a proprietary PCB placed at one end of the blister. The PCB registers, through a time stamp, the removal of single pills. This information can be read out real-time by a Smartphone or, at a later stage, by an event-taker. The Blixter can have other features, such as warning the patient when he/she has to take the drug.
This solution will be applied to other forms of packaging, including “smart” bottle solutions that enable the registration of the opening of the cap.
BeyonDevices aims to realize the full potential of packaging design and development to improve healthcare by facilitating better patient adherence.
