What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Taking medication as prescribed is extremely important to the overall effectiveness of any treatment process. This means taking the right dose, at the right time, frequently enough. It can be hard to keep track of all this information, especially when you’re taking several medications multiple times each day. CYCO makes it easy by keeping track of your schedule and reminding when to take which medication. It can even send activity information to your family members or caregivers.

We’ve all experienced the hassle of fumbling with multiple medications throughout the day; forgetting which medication to take at what time. Asking ourselves, “Did I take that medication today?”

With CYCO, your medication schedule is fully automated. CYCO shows you what medication to take at what time, keeps track of each time you’ve taken or missed a medication, and can even share this information with your loved ones and caregivers.

CYCO can be setup in just a few minutes and gives you the peace of mind that your medication is being taken properly. It even allows you to monitor your progress or share that information with caregivers and loved ones.

CYCO makes it easier than ever for you and your loved ones to stay on top of their medication schedule; from the app’s automated schedule calculations and LED indicators showing which medication to take, to the interchangeable medication layers.

    

We went through several prototypes and revisions on the way to creating the perfect smart pill box. After each iteration, we still felt like there was something missing. CYCO could be better and needed to be better. With our final design and prototype, we realized we had finally created the type of pill box we wanted our loved ones to have, that we wanted to bring to the market.

It’s been a long, exciting journey developing CYCO and we’re looking forward to getting the pill box and app into the hands of all of our backers. With your help, we can revolutionize the way medication is taken and help to transform people’s lives.

Risks and challenges

We believe Kickstarter is the right platform to launch CYCO and bring our idea to life because this is where innovative ideas are welcomed and where the status quo is challenged. Although this involves a risk, we believe this risk is worth it and we believe that our backers will support CYCO as an innovative technology that will contribute to health and be good for everyone.

We understand that medication, disease, and chronic illness are very serious issues in the world today that touch most people’s lives at some point. Because of this, we believe CYCO is useful to everyone who deals with these issues personally, either as a professional caregiver or as a family member.

To offset the risks and challenges involved with creating CYCO, we developed and tested 4 generations of prototypes using FDA-approved product materials. We also spent considerable time considering the many scenarios and preferences of our users to ensure that the product will address their needs. We also have secured patents and manufacturing to make sure we deliver CYCO to backers as quickly as possible.

We have selected a supplier that has extensive experience in producing medical accessories, products, and equipment to minimize the chances of unforeseen production issues that sometimes happen. Our brand stands for quality - a promise from our brand owners to each and every customer who supports us and our mission to make taking medication easier than ever before.
