Smart medication blisters
OtCM smart blisters are standard existing medication blisters enhanced with an electronic circuitry. This electronic circuitry is applied as a self-adhesive label.
Removing medication from the blister breaks one of the conductive tracks of the circuitry.
This allows the system to record data about :
o Time and date
o Particular position
o Other clinically relevant information
The electronic circuitry also contains Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. This enables retrieval of the stored data using a mobile phone or a dedicated Near Field Communication (NFC) reader.
