All of your Pills in one DEVICE...
Simply put, DIVI™ is an intelligent, easy to use pill dispenser:
- Dispenses 1-10 different medications at once*
- Communicates with family, friends and/or caregivers by txt and/or email**
- Easily creates customizable reports for you and your physician**
*based on an industry standard 500mg size "0" capsule/pill.
**This feature requires a computer and WiFi connected DIVI, but is not required to utilize many of DIVI's other amazing features.
How DIVI Works
Pills are placed into the seperate chambers of a "DIVI Cartridge". The Cartridge is then inserted in to the DIVI Dispenser.
Your profile/pill schedule is selected from the DIVI touch screen interface.
DIVI dispenses medication according to schedule, unless the previous medication has not been taken. This would cause an "alert".
DIVI can contact family and/or caregivers via text and email. The device owner decides the parameters that initiate an ALERT.
ALERT FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND/OR CAREGIVERS
Create easy to comprehend reports so you and your doctors can make decisions based on actual data.
"DIVI... ...innovative new device combines the practical functionality of a pill dispenser with the communication power of the modern smartphone."
"...Medical professionals can opt to incorporate DIVI technology into their practices and to receive alerts/data reports regarding patient adherence to dosage regimens..."
DIVI's most progressive feature is its robust analysis of adherence activity. This data is made available to researchers for the purpose of adherence study. According to the world health organization: "increasing the effectiveness of adherence interventions may have a far greater impact on the health of the population than any other specific medical treatment".
