Nudge is designed to simplify medication management through innovative technology, offering peace of mind and reliability. In this guide, we'll tackle the most common questions we receive about the Nudge device, from setup and usage to tips for getting the most out of your device. Let's dive in and uncover all you need to know to make your health journey with Nudge as smooth and effective as possible.

Is a smartphone required to use the Nudge medication tracker?

While you don't need a smartphone for daily medication routine alerts and movement tracking, you will require a smartphone with the Nudge App for the initial configuration of a Nudge device. Nudge App is also used to access historic reports on medication movement.

Does the Nudge medication tracker require a constant internet connection?

Yes. To facilitate timely email alerts and push notifications, an integral part of our proactive medication management system, Nudge requires a consistent internet connection.

What types of medication can the Nudge smart bottle track?

The Nudge smart bottle is designed to track any medication stored in a small-ish container.

Be it pills, capsules, tablets, suspension, or powder; as long as you can store it in the container, Nudge will help you manage medication tracking efficiently.

Can Nudge monitor multiple medications simultaneously?

Currently, a single Nudge device is tailored to track one medication bottle. However, for comprehensive medication management, you can use multiple Nudge devices to monitor different medications concurrently.

How can Nudge enhance my understanding of medication habits?

Nudge offers insightful reports on your medication habits. The companion app allows you to analyze medication adherence rates, understand behavioral patterns, and make informed decisions to improve your health.

What happens if I miss a medication dose?

Nudge's innovative alert system will remind you if you miss a dose. In case you overlook the device's light and sound alarms, Nudge escalates it by sending you email and push notifications.

Does Nudge determine medication consumption by weighing the container?

No. Nudge logs activity detected by proximity sensors, rather than weighing the medication container. Current scale sensors aren't reliable for detecting minor weight fluctuations such as a pill, and those that are require continuous calibration. Nudge uses the movement of the medication container at the expected dosage time to infer medication intake.

Can I deceive Nudge by just moving the medication bottle?

Indeed, that's possible. However, Nudge is designed to be a helpful tool, providing assistance for a seamless medication routine. If a user chooses not to participate actively, Nudge's full potential may not be realized. Its goal is to foster a consistent routine, remind the busy caregiver, and provide data-driven health insights, but it requires the cooperation of willing participants.
