Engineers at the Georgia Institute of Technology are developing a sensor-equipped necklace to help residents take their medication on time. "MagneTrace" uses magnetic sensors embedded in pills to detect when a pill is ingested. The sensors pass through the patient's digestive system. If a pill is not taken at the correct time, the necklace sends a signal to a smart phone that alerts the resident or caregiver.
