MEMS® Cap is the Gold Standard in academic research and in clinical trials for more than 30 years. Always in evolution… now in it’s 8th generation of refinements.

MEMS® Cap records and stores up to 4.000 dosing events corresponding to the date and time whenever a patient opens the bottle.

It’s is designed to compile the dosing histories of ambulatory patients prescribed oral medications. The stored information can be transferred at any time through the MEMS® Reader to the MEMS® adherence software for immediate analysis and interpretation.

It is the only professional smart package that can be used every day for at least 3 years without any recharge and without any communication network available.


Key characteristics:

  • Available in 38mm, 42mm and 45mm thread diameters
  • Optional LCD display
  • Optional child resistance functionality
  • Service life: 36 months from shipment
  • Water resistant
  • Wireless data transfer via NFC communication
  • Non-volatile memory for data storage (maintains data integrity for years after loss of battery power)
  • Optimal events detection technology
  • CE marked

The principle of the MEMS® technology consists in the incorporation of a micro-circuitry into pharmaceutical packages of various designs (pharmacy bottle, blister, inhaler, eye drops dispenser, etc.) such that the maneuvers needed to remove a dose of drug is detected in real time and time stamped, resulting in dosing history data.


MEMS® TrackCap

MEMS CAP without LCD

MEMS® TrackCap is equipped with a blind cap, without any patient interface.


MEMS® SmartCap


MEMS® SmartCap is equipped with an LCD system nudging the patient.

The LCD displays the number of doses taken in the past 24 hours and the hours elapsed since last dosing, helping patients to take medications at the appropriate times and preventing over dosing.
