August Faller develops new digitized folding carton prototype “Medical Prescription” for pharmaceutical packaging
WALDKIRCH, Germany , July 27, 2018 (Press Release) – Intelligent, interactive pharmaceutical packaging with integrated electronics can improve compliance and help patients handle their medication intake more easily. With the Smart Packaging prototype “Medical Prescription”, Faller has developed a digitised folding carton which supports patient compliance with regard to medication intake. The innovative packaging solution, which includes a small e-paper display and electronic controls (buttons), counts down the tablets, reminds the patient of the correct time to take them and alerts the patient when it is time to order a new prescription. The special trick: With the help of an app developed in-house and via Bluetooth, doctors or pharmacists can transfer the individual dosage instructions onto the folding carton.
