Follow your medical treatement properly



Our device help patients to follow their therapy properly. Furthermore, it allows a realt-time treatement monitoring for families and health professionals.




Patients have an auditory and visual reminder on the device when it is time to take their medicines.

Better treatment follow-up

Health professionals have the possibility to follow the patients' treatment in real time through our web application.

Reassurance for relatives

Relatives of the patients can be informed about the therapy and warn them if they forget to take their medication.

Easy setup: Plug & Play

Plug Heptabox in and start the treatment on the spot.

For a better medication intake

With our mobile and web application, we ensure that the relatives and the health professionals have access to the data meant for them. Patients are not forced to share information if they do not want to.
