Abstract

In this study, we developed textile proximity sensor using conductive textile to develop a Medication adherence management system. The textile proximity sensor utilizes the principle of the capacitor, and the ring type sensor used to reduce the fringe-effect. When take medicines, we made a custom PCB that converts the change of the data measured by the sensor into a digital value so that transmitted the PC. In order to compare the performance of the system, we evaluated the correlation between the data variation according to the quantity of pills in the electronic compact scale and the data in this system. As a result, Pearson’s correlation coefficient was 0.956(p<0.01), confirmed a good correlation between the scale and our system. Therefore, we concluded that our system evaluated able to whether or not to take medication.
