 Beep Beep! Take Your Pill: 'Chip On the Shoulder' as Medication Reminder
If sticking to your medication regime is hard work, scientists have invented a "chip on the shoulder" mechanism that will ensure you take your pills on time. .

The miniature sensor will be pinned onto a patients shoulder and will receive wireless signals from tiny chips inside pills.

The chips in the pills would be absolutely digestible.

Pharmaceutical company, Novartis and technology company, Proteus Biomedical have joined hands to develop the innovative idea, reports the Telegraph.

The sensor would also help doctors keep a check on their patients' medication regime.

Irregular medication often reduces the benefits of medicines, but this new technology is sure to bring a health change in the lives of many patients.
