Nudge Device vs. Smartphone Apps

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.

Many turn to smartphone apps for help in tracking their medication. However, these apps, while somewhat helpful, cannot match what Nudge offers. Our specialized device, created solely for medication tracking, frees you from your smartphone. It eliminates the need for manual inputs, cuts down on unnecessary notifications, and reduces digital clutter.

Let's explore what makes Nudge stand out:

Intelligent Nudge notification

 Intelligent Notifications

Unlike mobile apps that remind you every time a dose is due, Nudge intelligently alerts you only when you risk missing a dose. Instead of getting 365+ notifications a year, Nudge cuts that noise down by average of 80%


Nudge auto-logging medications


Where mobile apps require manual confirmation of medication intake, adding another step to your day, Nudge automatically logs the exact time you take your medication. This feature simplifies your routine, requiring no extra effort from you.


Nudge double dose prevention

Double-Dosing Prevention 

Regular apps might prompt you to take medication without checking if you've already done so, posing a risk of double-dosing. Nudge, however, maintains a secure log of medication dispensing. This log acts as a crucial reminder and prevents accidental double-dosing.


Nudge turns medication intake from a routine task into an intuitive, hassle-free experience. It keeps everyone informed, engaged, and optimistic about health management. Welcome to the future, where maintaining your health is as effortless and enjoyable as it should be. Here's to health, happiness, and the peace of mind that comes from knowing your medication management is spot on every day!

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.
