Stellar Tool for Chronic Illness (with so much potential!)

Pals who take meds - listen up!

I have been searching for the best way to store, organize and carry my meds and until this point, nothing has met my needs.

I’ve used everything from weekly pill box organizers, ziplock bags, satchels and dob kits. I looked into the Hero, and it was nearly perfect, but as someone who was always on the go pre-pandemic, it didn’t offer the ease or mobility to throw in my bag to pack up and go if I pleased.

I stumbled upon EllieGrid - a different kind of smart pillbox - and I am STOKED about it. Not only does it hold over a month’s worth of all of my prescriptions, through the connected app it can set audio + visual alarms/reminders, track compliance, build reports to show your success and patters for caregivers, and even remind you to take supplements that may not fit into the grid.

I’ve been using elliegrid for about three weeks now and its already been a game changer. I’m giving this a 4.5 star review because I’ve noticed a few small tech glitches, and I wish the refill reminders were programmable, but I was able to work around them. As someone who works for a non-profit based tech-startup myself, I understand the challenges of a new/small team, so I’m sure there is more to come with time!

Thank you elliegrid for creating (and sharing) this magnificent tool to keep my pills in check!

This app is so buggy it’s ridiculous. Have had many issues. Here is just one example.

I open the box to take my pills knowing the notification time is coming up very soon. The box shows which pills to take. I take them and close the lid. After closing the lid I decide to check the battery level in the manner laid out in the instructions. I try three times before it works. I thought, oh dang, I’ll bet it was communicating with the app via Bluetooth and that’s why it didn’t work at first. Sure enough, I check the app and it didn’t record that I had taken the pills. Shortly after, the notification to take the pills goes off in the app. I open the app to record my taking my pills, but only one of the pills I’ve taken shows up in the list and it shows that there was no connection to the pill box for this pill. I push the button to show I took the pill, and my history shows it’s the only pill I took out of three that I actually did take.

If I had memory issues, I would NEVER trust this device and app. Who in the world would sell a medical device that’s so buggy? For me, I’ll still use it because it’s a convenient way to dispense meds and I have no memory issues, but I’d never ever let an elderly person with any memory issues use it. And for the price of the device, it ought to work flawlessly.

Hello, I am very sorry for this inconvenience. I would be more than happy to help resolve this for you.

In terms of checking the battery, the elephant is a cap-touch button, meaning it works when it senses a difference in pressure. You do not need to push down on it hard. For it to work, you must gently place your thumb on the elephant icon for 3-5 seconds.

In response to not all the pills showing up in the reports, it seems like the alarms are not synced correctly. Go to your setting, select Pill Box, Advanced Alarm Settings, and then scroll down until you see Alarm Synchronization. Alarm synchronization checks for any discrepancies between app and pillbox alarms. Then allows you to overwrite the pillbox's data to match the app's data (synchronize). Please feel free to reach out to us at support@elliegrid.com if you have any other questions.

A great solution for medication management!

Once I got past more than a couple of pills per day, I decided I needed a better way to manage them. Most pill organizers are geared around a weekly schedule, but I wanted something I didn't have to refill every week. I also wanted something connected with my smartphone for tracking.

The app and pillbox are super simple to use. It will organize up to 7 medications, and can hold anywhere from a couple of weeks to a month of more per pill depending on the size and shape. The compartments are different sizes, so even larger pills can be accommodated.

I like the schedule and alarm function to remind me when it's time to take my pills. I can be a bit forgetful if my morning or evening routine is interrupted for some reason. While I could set an alarm on my phone, this provides positive confirmation that I've opened the pill case and taken my medication. There is a unique system of lights on the lid to indicate what you need to take and how many (up to 3 pills per medication). If you're a caretaker, you can also receive reports of compliance for the person taking the medication (missed doses, etc).

It's really a neat solution at a reasonable price. Comparable options are either super expensive or require a monthly subscription.

Definitely worth getting if you need to manage multiple medications on a schedule!
