PillBug

Pharmaceutical Reminders for the Chronically Amnesiatics


The Pebble Smartwatch's simplicity and the medical field's serious applications inspired our team to develop PillBug, a medicine reminder app that uses the Pebble and a Firebase database to send reminder notifications. The notifications are tied to an online web application that can be edited by either a doctor or a caretaker. The accompanying smartphone uses javascript to access the database in pre-determined intervals, allowing the caretaker to easily adjust the schedule to the patient's needs and have that schedule be reflected in the Pebble near real time. We believe that PillBug would find a home among elderly patients that have trouble remembering to take their medication.
