Nano pills.

nano pills

I went to a #bryo4ever event tonight and I had really nice talks with a various audience. I didn’t really brainstorm a lot but with one. The idea? Intelligent pills that tell the nurses whether a patient has taken his/her pills.

How does it work? Well, a nano sensor is added to the form of a pill. That nano sensor has two main characteristics. The first is that is programmable to be identified (you can add a pill name and dosage to it but also tell who it’s for). The second characteristic is that when the substance around is resolved and taken up by the body, the sensor sends out a signal that it has been consumed. Follow up on patients is really easy. In case you were wondering… The sensor just comes out with the next toilet visit.
