Ryan Marcotte, General Manager of Enercon noted “We are very proud to be entrusted to manufacture PharmRight’s Livi™ system.

PharmRight Corporation was formed in 2013 to produce devices and offer services that maximize medication adherence and allow patients to age in place. The company has developed Livi™, an innovative, fully-automated home medication dispenser. A new entrant to what is being called “The Internet of Things,” Livi™ is designed to simulate the supervision of an on-site caregiver by prompting the user to take the right medication…at the right time…in the right quantity…with the right instructions under the Internet-enabled remote oversight of a caregiver or a team of caregivers. A cloud application monitors and captures all user interactions with the device. Family members and professional caregivers can be alerted via text message or e-mail if a user misses a dose or requires a re-fill. Comprehensive medication adherence reports are available via computer and mobile devices.
Enercon Technologies provides a full range of services including product development, prototyping, volume manufacturing/assembly, distribution, inventory management and service depot support. Located just outside Portland, ME, Enercon provides seamless coordination between engineering and production operations, helping customers streamline the product development cycle, reducing time-to-market and total development costs.
