The Inspiration for Hourbands

Today in the office, I spoke with Hourbands’ CEO and Founder, Porter O’Doherty about his inspiration to invent Hourbands™. O’Doherty is a seasoned entrepreneur with over 20 years’ experience of starting and running businesses.

He said: “I invented Hourbands™ out of necessity. All too often my wife was forgetting if she took her thyroid pill or not. The hardest part about this medication is that it must be taken without food or water for 30 minutes so it’s often taken immediately after waking up (which makes it easy to forget).”

His inspiration stemmed out of concern for his wife, realizing if she was forgetting her medication, there must be more people out there with the same challenges!

You might ask, what’s the big deal with missing a dose?

Brian Bieller, B.S., senior healthcare professional with over 20 years of experience, (dealing specifically with epilepsy) states: “a consistent blood level from the body allows the medication to reach its desired effect.” This desired target can be difficult to achieve when missing a dose. Therefore, when taking medication, it is important to take the right dose at the appropriate time for a better outcome of health.

Hourbands was founded with the intentions of helping individuals manage their medications and give them an easy way to ensure better health outcomes and improved quality of life.

O’Doherty’s wife has been using Hourbands™ for over a year and has not forgotten a pill!
