Digital Audio Labeling
For the blind/visually impaired and elderly communities, taking medication can often be an uneasy and unsafe situation. For more than 25 million people living with vision loss of some degree or another, not being able to read prescription container labels can be a scary reality. Not only does it limit independence for a blind/visually impaired or elderly person, but it is not uncommon for situations to lead to taking the wrong medication or improper dosage, resulting in illness, an ER visit or death.
AccessaMed identified this need first hand with family and friends. With a strong desire to find a solution, we created a Digital Audio Label that permanently adheres to prescription bottles and packages. The Digital Audio Label accurately and independently allows users to know what medications they are taking and reminds them of the appropriate dosage.
