Nudge Device vs. Medication Dispensers

Ever found yourself wondering if you've already taken your meds today? You're certainly not alone. In the USA 50% (ref) do not stick to our prescribed medication plans. This leads to a slew of problems: missed doses, worsening health conditions, and avoidable emergency room visits.

Before Nudge, only costly medication dispensers could somewhat address this issue. These dispensers come with numerous moving parts, requiring routine maintenance, additional budget for ongoing subscriptions, and considerable space for their bulky size. In contrast, the Nudge device offers a superior solution.

Nudge distinguishes itself in several ways:

Nudge is cheapest alternative

 Affordability and No Subscriptions: Nudge is priced under $100, while medication dispensers start at $300 plus subscription fees. Nudge operates without a subscription model, eliminating concerns about disrupted medication management due to unpaid bills.


Nudge supports all types of medications

Versatility in Medication Tracking: Nudge tracks all types of medications, including half pills, powders, and liquids, without proprietary restrictions or calibration-required weight scales that might cause false alarms or inconvenience users with mobility issues.


Nudge small footprint

Compact Design: Unlike bulky dispensers that compete for kitchen counter space, Nudge's compact size allows it to fit on a bedside table or in any convenient space.


In summary, Nudge addresses medication adherence challenges more affordably and conveniently than traditional dispensers, without the need for subscriptions, and accommodates a wider variety of medication forms with its compact and user-friendly design.

Nudge FAQ

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.
