  • Abstract:
    This paper presents a medication adherence monitoring system for pill bottles based on a wearable inertial sensor. Signal templates corresponding to the two actions of twist-cap and hand-to-mouth are created using a camera-assisted training phase. The act of pill intake is then identified by performing a moving window dynamic time warping in real-time between signal templates and the signals acquired by the wearable inertial sensor. The outcomes of the experimentations carried out indicate that the developed medical adherence monitoring system identifies the act of pill intake with a high degree of accuracy.
