EllieGrid vs. Other Pill Boxes
Organize Pills in Seconds
By sorting medications by type instead of time, you can refill EllieGrid in seconds by simply pouring the bottle of pills into the appropriate compartment. The lights on the lid will turn on whenever it is time to take your pills, and indicate which pills to take and how many.
Since typical weekly pill boxes organize medications by the time of day, users have to individually sort their pills every week. Not only is this a very tedious task that can take forever, but it can also be dangerous since there is a lot of room for error.
Whenever it is time to take your pills you will receive a friendly notification on your phone, the alarm on EllieGrid will ring, and the lights on the device will tell you which pills to take and how many.
Life can get busy, and when it does, it is easy to forget to take your vitamins & medications.
Thanks to EllieGrid's sensors, you can track your adherence data so you can remember if you already took your meds or not, preventing overdose. You can also share this information in real time with family or caregivers so that they can be a helping hand whenever you need it.
There is currently no way for you, caregivers, or even care providers, to know if medications are being taken correctly.
People describe EllieGrid as "sleek", "modern" and "stylish" whereas traditional pill boxes are described as "old-people-pill boxes" in our surveys and interviews.
For much of the healthcare industry, people are treated as patients before people, and that is reflected in the design of "medical" devices. People feel stigmatized when using these products and as a result do not use them.
