Abstract

Current methods for improving patients' compliance with their prescribed treatment regimens, especially In those cases where noncompliance Is a function of mere forgetfulness, have distinct disadvantages, chief among them their relative obtruslveness and impact on patient privacy. The MemoPatch concept is a patent-pending electronic reminder system consisting of a dermal patch outfitted with a miniaturized programmable pulse generator (ASIC) that gives patients a perceptible stimulus to the skin. This paper describes the concept, reviews specification, and presents three ASIC-based configurations.
