Medicrate

In preparation for our up and coming presentations and guru’s day we have been challenged with finessing products description and giving a little bit of background behind our concept. During this time, I have also settled on my products final name – “Medicrate”

Medicrate is a digital, IoT enabled home product which takes the stress out of taking daily medication and health supplements. It achieves this by assisting in the organisation, storage and dispensing of medication as well as providing an interactive feedback and reminder service that will give consumers peace of mind. Medicrate’s clean and modern appearance strays away from sterile, clinical looking aesthetics which are currently associated with medication and is instead a beautifully crafted product that will be a feature within a room.

Background

Keeping track of medication consumption can often be a daunting task and with the amount of medication consumers increasing, it opens up a large market which is yet to be fully explored. Through research and from understanding the difficulty first hand, I have begun to recognise the need for a product like medicrate and the impact it will have. Standard pill boxes which are currently on the market lack decent functionality and form and can quite easily be completely forgotten about. My project aims to solve these issues by integrating digital technology into a beautifully crafted home product.
