CuePath Innovation enables families and care professionals to remotely track medication intake by their loved ones and patients who take many pill doses throughout the day.
CuePath’s solution combines printed electronic sensors with widely used blister pack medication packaging that does not require patients and caregivers to learn new technology. This smart packaging solution transmits information to remote caregivers through a cellular gateway and mobile app.
An embedded alarm provides reminders to the patient to take the appropriate medication at the right time. The end result is improved quality of life and greater independence for senior patients, peace of mind for their family caregivers, and increased customer attraction and loyalty for pharmacies offering CuePath’s product.
As a CPEIA member, CuePath is looking to partner with packaging companies in manufacturing the product, and also in developing a fully integrated solution for retirement communities, pharmacies, home care providers and pharmaceutical companies. After taking its technology through beta stage, CuePath is getting ready to scale up its manufacturing capability for printed sensors with a suitable technology partner.
Consistently ranked among the Top 100 universities in the world, McMaster University is renowned for its innovation in both learning and discovery.
Established in 1958, McMaster’s institutes, centers and laboratories have collaborated on numerous research projects with the public and private sectors. It is always looking for partners to tackle the big questions – like how to make printed electronics viable, affordable and ubiquitous.
McMaster’s faculty and students take on research challenges covering all length scales, from designing polymers and molecules atom by atom, to exploring nanoparticle decoration of interfaces, to printing optoelectronic devices and sensors, and designing and building integrated systems.
“CuePath and McMaster demonstrate the vast opportunity Canada has to become a force in the global printable and flexible electronics sector,” said Peter Kallai, president and CEO of the CPEIA.
