Keeping track of taking your medication or even remembering if they were taken can, at times, be a problem for people. The Memo Box Mini combined with the Memo Health App by Tinylogics can help you with all that.
Memo Box Mini is a small, compact Smart Pillbox that works with your smartphone and the Memo Health App.
• Memo Box Mini
• USB – micro USB charging cable
• Quick start guide
• Size – 1 3/8″L x 2 19/32W x 19/32″H
• Weight – .48 oz
• Bluetooth smart enabled
• Built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery
• One month battery life under typical usage
• Three compartments can hold up to (depending on size of medication):
– x6 large caplets or
– x9 capsules or
– x15 pills
The Memo Box Mini is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and easy to carry in your pocket, purse or bag. If you take a large volume of medication or supplements on a daily basis, it might be a bit too small. It’s ideal for traveling on short trips, one-day dosage (morning, afternoon, night), smaller volume and short term prescriptions. The hard plastic-like material is lightweight and durable. I’ve dropped it a few times, on the hardwood floor of my dining room, by accident and it held up very well.
The inner storage compartments can be washed with water but it is not waterproof. It is better to wipe down the Memo Box Mini with a damp cloth. The micro USB port does have a covering to protect it, but try not to get water on the box shaft area to avoid any damage.
Indicator light/snooze button on the outside will give you alerts:
• Red – Potential double dosing
• Green – Time to take medication
• Blue – Charging
Press when Memo Box Mini rings to snooze. If there is ‘no beep’, then battery could be dead.
Reset button is located on the inner shaft of the Memo Box.
The beeping alarm sound on the device is loud enough to hear from another room, but not annoying.
The Memo Health App can be used with or without the Memo Box Mini. But once connected to the app on your smartphone, it unlocks the full features and usage of the products… and more.
Features of the Memo Health App:
• Programmable reminder
• Medication records tracker
• Double dose alert
• Family adherence monitor
• Misplaced reminder
• Memo box finder
• Battery monitor
After downloading the free Memo Health App, you will need to create an account and pair the device. Once connected, you can program your alarms, medication, refill and locator. You can use more than one Memo Box Mini device with the app, just by giving them different names.
Alarms can be programmed daily, weekly, every 2 days, weekend or customized. The alarm can be adjusted in case medication is taken earlier or later than the designated alarm time. It will alert you of over-dosing through the app and the Memo Box Mini. Medication and dosage can be added to track when used/taken. It does give you the option of taking a photo of the instructions outside the bottle to apply to each medication entry.
The Family Tracker allows you to add users to see their records. Tracker log keeps track of timely medication usage and can alert family members, letting them contact you by phone or message. The Refill Reminder will let you know when you need a refill. The GPS functionality allows you to create alarms to alert you when you are leaving pre-set locations without it.
Only problem I had with the Memo Box Mini is with the illustrations in the Quick Start Guide. The images of the device have very fine lines that make them very hard to see and nearly invisible.
They currently have a Kickstarter campaign running, which has already gone over it’s goal.
