New Edible Microchips to Alert Doctors, Mobile Phones if Patients Do Not Takes Meds

Jan 20, 2012 by

New ‘edible’ microchips will soon be available to alert doctors and mobile phones if patients are not taking their medications, each smaller than a grain of sand. The chips record the ‘precise’ medical details of a patient’s pill regime and are scheduled to be available in Britain by the end of the year.

 

The microchips will be unleashed by a partnership involving both an American biomedical company and a British healthcare firm. Labeled as ‘digestible sensors’, the microchips are set up to send alerts to the mobile phone of a doctor or designated ‘caretaker’ if patient has strayed from their specified pill routine. The companies say that they are attempting to develop ‘intelligent medicines’.
