Pill boxes or pill organizers are often marked with the days of the week to remind you when you should take your medicine. But that’s a passive notification. If you forget to take your medicine you might not remember until you see the pill box. Tricella aims to solve that dilemma with Liif, a pill box that reminds you to take your medicine by sending notifications to your mobile device.
Liif sends alerts to your phone via Wi-Fi and uses Bluetooth or NFC to set up its app. The app also has a calendar that shows you when you forgot to take your medicine. Other people can also install the Liif app on their mobile device and be notified if you forgot to take your medicine. An optional Liif hub that can send alerts to other phones if you don’t own a mobile device. Unfortunately, as of this writing Tricella has no detailed explanation or demonstration of Liif’s set up process on its website.
Liif comes in two sizes and is available from Tricella’s online shop. Liif Today has four chambers and is suited for medicine that need to be taken at different times of a day, while Liif This Week costs $55 and has seven chambers for medicine that need to be taken once a day throughout a week. Liif Today costs $45 (USD) while Liif This Week costs $55. At nearly 10 times the price of ordinary pill boxes, I suggest you ask Tricella for more information on how Liif works before you buy it.
