From the strange but true Patent and Trademark department: Talking Prescription Bottle
Posted on 4-Feb-2004 02:00 | Filed under: News

iVoice announced it has filed an additional patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The application is titled: Methodology for Talking Prescription Bottle With Voice Instructions via Wireless Technology. It's not clear on their press release what kind of wireless technology is used in this "invention".

Accord to their release, approximately three billion prescriptions are filled each year with the number of prescriptions expected to climb to four billion in 2004. Pharmacies have been struggling with the issue of label readability and comprehension for many years. With the iVoice patent pending technology, prescription bottles will tell users what medication is inside and the proper dosage, along with any other important directions and warnings.

The invention includes methods of communicating prescription instructions to the patient's medicine or prescription bottle. The methodology involves providing a medicine or prescription container with dosage instructions and warnings for the medication, via wireless technology. Optional software permits simultaneous labeling and wireless wav file transmission to make the medicine container a speaking product that is compliant with law.
