Background: Taking medication is an integral part of many people’s lives, yet medication as a concept is heavily stigmatized in society. Patients tend to shy away from taking medication in public in an effort to keep from appearing “sick” or “ill” and will oftentimes skip doses when they are outside the comfort of their home. Ava by Dispensus aims to eliminate the discomfort coupled with taking medication, with the ultimate goal of improving drug adherence, by creating a device that makes it convenient and inconspicuous to take medication publicly.
