      Sensor Technology Aims to Improve Medication Adherence

      Sensors and devices being developed by nGageIT Digital Health Solutions can track patient use of oral solid-dosage or injectable drugs.
      Nano-enabled technology and sensor platforms from nGageIT Digital Health Solutions will allow verification that medications are ingested or injected correctly, and on schedule, using a smart phone, said the company in a March 12, 2018 press release. Technologies include a nanoparticle that can be added to oral solid-dosage drug coatings as well as devices that measure drug injections.
      The sensor technologies monitor when patients take either oral medications or give themselves medical injections at home. These data are automatically uploaded to the cloud through the patient’s smart phone and can be tracked in real-time by healthcare providers and in clinical trials, which will lead to better compliance with medical advice and medical device use. Patients can automate complex dosing schedules, and physicians can use medication usage data to precisely customize therapy.
