A COMPANY WITH HEART
Our mission is to help people live healthier, happier lives.
We initially designed the uBox at MIT, for treating tuberculosis in India with Innovators In Health and the Prajnopaya Foundation. The uBox went on to win the Yunus Challenge to Alleviate Poverty and two years of work culminated in a 200-patient trial in India.
We quickly found the greatest need around addiction -- both prevention and recovery.
We adapted the underlying smart pillbox technology to help across a range of medical conditions, and expanded our product line to include the uCap and uSev.
A COMPANY WITH UPAYA
The names of uCap, uBox and uSev come from the Sanksrit word upaya, which means roughly "compassion through skillful means".
It stems from the Buddhist principle of providing care for all, and improving well-being through technology driven by empathy and understanding. upaya drives every decision we make for my-pills, and our users.
