Is technology taking over the world?
Hopefully not…but it is making taking care of our health a whole lot easier!
I’m so glad I discovered this little gadget – with a pretty catchy name – Pill Drill 🙂 At first I thought, oh cute, a little pill box. But hold on…this is QUITE a bit more….
It’s way more than a better pill organizer. Most AM/PM pill organizers are flimsy, cheap, and hard to open. I used to see them in the dollar store. And they never fit my pills anyway! The pill drill makers call this”ergonomically advanced” – what I learned was how any of my pills – and I take a LOT of pills – were perfectly compatible with the PillDrill system. Each pod is individually removable, easy to open, and has a built-in scanning tag on its base.
A scanning tag!
The strips themselves snap together, so you can connect as many as you need to accommodate your schedule. Whether it’s two pills or two hundred! There’s even a secure travel strap, which is great for all the traveling I do – my pills have been known to fall out and get mixed up with all of my various luggage!
So a cool pill container, right?
Wrong – this does even more. Check this out…
The Hub sits next to your pills at home, knows your medication schedule, and issues clear audio visual alerts when doses are due. The only two requirements are power and Wi-Fi. This little “hub” has customizable sound and light reminders. It also has a really big screen that gives precise dosage information. The hub also has a bunch of easy to understand buttons for allowing you to scroll through daily history and upcoming schedule.
And…it’s more than just managing physical health – it manages your overall wellbeing too! You can scan the “Mood Cube” anytime to log how you’re feeling! The Mood Cube has five faces — Great, Good, OK, Bad, and Awful. Scan any face to register your current mood or pain level.
And oh – there’s an APP for that! You can even use the PillDrill app to create and edit your med schedule, get reminders and log doses on the go, or be notified about a loved one’s adherence and mood in real-time throughout the day.
What I love most is how flexible and adaptable this all is. You can keep your medication in its original packaging with their scanning tags, which attach to pill bottles and irregularly shaped items alike. There is no one size fits all with medication, so whatever the specifics of your regimen PillDrill is able to accomodate any of this. And I love the idea that it can notify you – because I’m not very good at remembering to take all of my supplements all the time
The Pill Drill App is awesome. It’s compatible with iOS and Android; SMS and email notifications also available – whic his great for an avid smartphone user like myself. I love this app because it’s a really user-friendly medication management tool: simple enough for everyone to use, and flexible enough to help anyone.

You won’t be sorry. You’ll wonder how the heck you kept track of your health regimen before Pill Drill!
