One of the things people don’t usually keep track of is how they store their medication. Each year millions of people put their life in danger without realising it by using meds that have gone bad due to mismanagement. This seems like an issue that can be solved easily using Internet of things !
That’s where MedAngel comes in!
Using a smart thermometer, MedAngel can notify its users on the condition of their meds. If the medication is getting too hot or too cold, a notification is sent to the user’s phone. MedAngel keeps meds safe using this technique.
It’s a very simple idea but can still have a huge impact on the life of MedAngel users. It was born in 2015 from Amin Zayani’s (T1 diabetic) frustration. After discovering that his domestic refrigerator accidentally froze his insulin, he founded the company.
This startup is the perfect example of how digital transformation and Internet of things can work together to make life more convenient for a lot of people. The smart thermometer connected to the app is the Internet of tings element here. Before MedAngel, some people who suffered for illness felt restricted. For example, a diabetic person couldn’t go to the beach because they feared that the heat would make their insulin turn bad. There was no way of checking to see if their meds had overheated or not. Thus, they had to stay at home. By using the tools that digital transformation brought, these people can have more freedom. They can now enjoy a safe day on the beach while still keeping an eye on their meds.
