iVoice explains patent of talking bottle technology
Posted on 10-Feb-2004 07:34 | Filed under: News

iVoice released some additional comments and information regarding their recent filing of a patent application for a talking medicine bottle.

Jerry Mahoney, C.E.O. of iVoice, Inc. said, "The basic usage under the new patent application will allow pharmacists to simply take a medication bottle and wave or run it by a designated PC. That PC, via wireless technology, will automatically download the appropriate talking prescription instructions to the pill bottle. This information comes from either what the pharmacist has typed into the computer, via text to speech, or from an existing database of instructions for the prescribed medication prepared by the pharmaceutical manufacturer. When a person cannot read or understand the label on a medication bottle, errors in use can occur. The resulting errors can range from unfavorable reactions that are simply uncomfortable to untimely death. In particular, the elderly and people with visual and other disabilities have faced serious medical emergencies because they were unable to read the labels or instructions on their medications. When it's time to take the prescription, the patient simply presses a built-in button on the medication bottle to hear the message and instructions. In addition, the message prepared by the pharmaceutical manufacturer could contain additional information, including advertisements, additional information regarding the condition being treated, or any other message the company wishes to include to allow the company to establish further goodwill and branding relating to its products."
