How We Use It To Support the Need
This automated medication dispenser promotes independence by providing alarm reminders at required medication times. At designated medication times the user can easily take their own meds by simply pressing a large button, wait for a small plastic cup of pre-poured medications for a specific med time. Many individuals with disabilities have complicated medication regimes. Individuals may not be able to read medication orders, may have difficulties with memory or fine motor skills and this device can assist many individuals with these impairments. The device can also send alerts to caregivers.
