SnapSlide: The Breakthrough Single-handed Closure of Pill Bottles

  1. SnapSlide: The Breakthrough Single-handed Closure of Pill Bottles Living to 100 Club 37:31

On this Living to 100 Club podcast, we welcome a designer of a breakthrough product for anyone struggling to open child-proof pill bottles. Our guest is Rocky Batzel, CEO of SnapSlide, a packaging innovations company dedicated to making it easier to access, use, and store pharmaceutical products. We discuss the mounting medical accessibility issue for the millions of Americans with loss of hand dexterity, due to arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and a host of other disabling conditions. Whether prescription medications or over the counter bottles, the patented SnapSlide closure allows for one-handed opening and closing. Is this the future of medical packaging? What should consumers look for when selecting medications? And, how can older adults advocate for themselves when it comes to accessible medical packaging. Join us for this eye-opening program.

Mini Bio

A native of Scranton, Pennsylvania, Rocky Batzel is the inventor of SnapSlide and currently serves as the company’s Chief Executive Officer. He earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Marywood University in Pennsylvania and, while enrolled in medical school, he noticed his grandmother struggling with a traditional, “push-and-twist”, child-resistant cap on her prescription bottle. That inspirational moment led him to pivot his career into the world of entrepreneurship, and he set out to design the very first prototype of what would eventually become SnapSlide. After securing patent protection, Rocky ultimately formed a company around his groundbreaking innovation. As the company’s CEO, he is dedicated to advancing engineering, diversifying applications, and leading SnapSlide’s mission to bring this adaptive solution to those who need it most.
