125,000 deaths per year are related to human error or confusion when taking medication, or medication noncompliance. It is also estimated to be the cause of 10% of all hospitalizations with cost estimations of hospitalization between $100 billion and $289 billion per year.
Geri-Safe will meet the problem head on, by providing an automated, easy to use, and accurate medication dispensing system. It will not only save billions of dollars, but give invaluable peace of mind to those who know their loved ones are taking the correct medication and dosage.
Starting Point Geri-Safe is starting with more than one possible angle to approach the development of the dispensing system, including technology not yet applied in the industry.
Goal Through the process of the Hardware Accelerator, Geri-Safe will produce a proof of concept and an infant prototype to showcase the viability of the project and garnish the necessary investments for the research and development of the future product.
