Shenzhen People Strong High-Tech
When I was doing my postgraduate studies, my grandmother suffered from a chronic disease that required her to be on permanent medication. It was a challenging period for everyone to adjust to this new routine, and for her to remember to take her medication correctly and in a timely manner as per the doctor’s instructions. As a result of this experience, I designed a flower-shaped smart pillbox to improve her medication compliance. This started the journey of People Strong High-Tech, where we find innovative solutions to solve everyday challenges using the Internet of Things.
