Common Pill Box Issues

A traditional medication organizer is a plastic device with multiple compartments for storing scheduled doses of medicine. Other than having Sunday-Monday labels, most don’t help the user navigate medication management beyond letting you separate meds for each day of the week.

Here are some other common pill box issues:

  • They’re not easy to use with physical illness or disability. It’s common for anyone to fumble with small pills — it’s even more difficult if you have a physical disability or illness such as arthritis or Parkinson’s. 
  • They become tricky with more than just a few pills inside. It’s cumbersome to add and take out pills when you have several prescriptions piled inside tiny compartments. Often it means dumping out the pill box to find what you need, which can be both frustrating and time-consuming. 
  • They don’t help you maintain precise pill schedules. Pill boxes won’t help you remember correct dosages or which pills to take with or without a meal. Many people have pill schedules that require a more complex medication organization system to keep everything on track. 
  • You still have to remember to take meds. Your meds are sorted, but will you remember to take them? How can you know if you’ve missed a dose? Relying on a traditional medication box also means counting on human memory for taking medications, which can be flawed when life gets hectic. 

Is Hero Right for You?

Hero removes the pain points of traditional pill boxes. Here’s how:

  • Pills are dispensed into a cup. You don’t have to worry about fumbling with tiny pills or dropping meds because they’ll be conveniently and reliably dispensed into a cup. 
  • Hero stores many pills at once. Hero allows you to load up to ten pills at a time, and it only dispenses them one by one when it’s time to take them. You don’t have to worry about picking up the wrong med from a pill box — Hero takes the guesswork out of it. 
  • Hero helps you stay on track with complicated medication management. It’s easy to miss a dose when you have to take several medications a day. Thanks to Hero’s built-in reminder system, it’s easy to sort out what pills to take and when to take them. 
  • Never miss a dose. Hero alerts you when it’s time to take a pill, and you can sync those reminders onto a smartphone for extra support. Simply program the correct timing and dosage of each medication, and reminders will alert you when necessary.
