Texte AlternatifFaller was honoured for its digitalised, interactive packaging solution called “Medical Prescription”, which actively helps users to take their medication in the correct way. Digitalised folding boxes have extremely flat electronic units with an e-paper display, control keys, a microcontroller, a battery and a Bluetooth interface. Doctors or pharmacists can use an app to transfer individualised instructions for use directly onto the package. The package automatically monitors the number of tablets inside and reminds the patient when it is time to take the medication by means of an integrated clock, LED and acoustic signal. If the contents fall to a certain minimum level, the display also gives a warning and recommends ordering a new prescription.
