This Package's E-Paper Display Offers Medication Reminders

The majority of today's pharmaceutical packaging is static and nonresponsive, but August Faller sees the potential for it to play a vital part in supporting one's health.

As August Faller manufactures and supplies pharmaceutical secondary packaging solutions, it developed a folding carton prototype with an integrated e-paper display. When paired with an app and Bluetooth, the smart package has the potential to reveal personalized dosage information, as well as reminders like when one's medication should be taken.

When a patient interacts with the button on the intelligent pharmaceutical packaging for the first time, the carton's screen displays a greeting, as well as prompts to verify the included tablets or view dosage information. Rather than relying on an external reminder system of some sort, patients may get support from the package itself, which emits a tone to signal when it's time to take one's medication.
