The uBox has been developed to be a solution to the medication adherence problems for a multitude of applications. The box offers a way to collect and formulate patient and volunteer adherence data for use in the field while offering a critical locking feature for the pills inside the box. The uBox is currently transitioning to production on the order of hundreds. A rig was designed to reduce error in the assembly of the locking mechanism. This includes a device to mount the motor accurately and repeatably which is critical to the function of the uBox. In addition, the strengths of different glues for the mounting of the motor were analyzed and optimal glue was determined.
