DALLAS, Texas – November 11, 2020 – LockedBrands, producer of smart personal lockboxes, has experienced a strong first half in its equity crowdfunding campaign. Launched in mid-September on the WeFunder platform, the LockedBrands campaign has raised more than $150,000 to date.
After the successful release of Pillar, a voice-activated, app-controlled, portable safe, LockedBrands took that technology further and developed Secure Med Manager. This smart device is created specifically to secure and dispense pharmaceuticals, dispensing each dose only to the patient, and only per the doctor’s prescription. All dispensing information is logged and saved in the cloud, where it can be easily accessed and managed by the patient’s healthcare team.
“Our secure storage and management devices were created to develop real solutions for the epidemic of opioid and other prescription drug abuse,” says LockedBrands CEO and founder Justin Monger. “As medicine has become more advanced, so should the dispensing and management of it.”
As Monger sees it, the stakes of securely managing prescriptions for highly addictive medications are extremely high. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2018, almost 70,000 people died from drug overdoses, and nearly 70% of those deaths involved a prescription or illicit opioid.
Secure Med Manager is also designed for use by older patients who have complicated drug regimens that are difficult to manage, and for households seeking to prevent young children from having access to medications. With Secure Med Manager, LockedBrands offers a system that is secure and easy to use, while also being affordable and portable.
