Getting the elderly to follow a medication regimen would be easier than ever with the EasyPill. This conceptual device reminds senior citizens when to take their medication and how much to take. The pill pad is also connected to the cloud, making it easy for doctors to monitor the medication regimens of their patients.

The EasyPill uses lights and a digital clock to remind seniors when it's time to take their pills. A ring encircles the correct bottle at the appropriate time, and a weight sensor measures whether the dose taken is too much or too little. All data is transmitted to a doctor who can monitor it using an accompanying app.

With the data, the doctor can correct the patient on their dosages or remind them to take their pills. The EasyPill can also be connected to family members as well, which makes it easier to tell whether or not grandpa is taking his medication like he says he is.
