A Medicine-Dispensing Robot Pillo is Under Development

Do you struggle with taking your meds on a consistent basis or constantly forget the specific time when you are supposed to take them? Do you have so many different medications prescribed that it is hard to keep up with them all? Do you simply value structure and regimen to your daily medication routine? Whichever scenario best describes you, Pillo, a medicine-dispensing robot, could soon be improving your health and wellness plan.

The Pillo robot has been programmed with artificial intelligence (AI) and has built-in facial and voice recognition. This technology allows this medical robot to dispense medications specifically for the person standing in front of them. When dispensing medication, the robot talks to the patient and communicates what medication is being dispensed and why it has been prescribed. Pillo also has the capacity to store medications for multiple people at one time, a feature that is great for larger households.

Not only does this robot remember what medication belongs to each person, it also has the ability to send a friendly reminder when it is time to take a dose. Along with the reminders and updates, Pillo can send messages to a phone alerting a patient when they have missed a dose of their medicine. With conditions that require strict compliance to a medication regimen like Diabetes and Heart Conditions, this feature could save lives.

Pillo is designed to grow and adapt to each individual consumer. For instance, its artificial intelligence helps Pillo to quickly learn about a specific patient, allowing for its updates, requests, and tasks to be customized for each individual user. This attribute is most convenient when Pillo is set up with other features besides pill dispensing, such as calorie intake monitoring.

The Future of Pillo
Pillo Health, the makers of the Pillo robot, have launched a fundraising campaign on IndieGogo to bring their product to market.

If Pillo does begin arriving in homes, it will not only help people organize medication but will also be a huge relief to caregivers and guardians. Pillo helps alleviate some of the confusion that can occur with dosing schedules and also minimalizes dosing error. It goes far beyond current existing electronic medicine reminds. It is compatible with smartphones and watches, creating a full synchronization between your health plan and other corresponding technologies.

The sleek and innovative design also makes it a versatile product. Small in size and with a user interface that anyone can learn, this high-quality robot is likely to be well-worth purchasing for many patients and in-home caregivers.
