Automatic Pill Dispenser
Automatic pill dispenser with alarm
Our automatic pill dispenser, alarms and rotates to release medication at specified times to help you keep track of doses.
It is important to take medication at the right times because getting it wrong can affect health and can also increase the risk of falling. It can become confusing when different medicines are prescribed to be taken at different times. The pill dispenser can help the elderly or anyone who takes regular medication, to adhere to their medication regime. Tablets are only dispensed at the required time, reducing the risk of taking a repeat dose.
The automatic pill dispenser is also a useful alternative for people who have problems getting the lid off a standard pill box.
How the automatic pill dispenser works
The automatic pill dispenser allows a patient or carer to sort out medicines in advance. The alarm can be set to the desired times and when it is time to take the medication, it alarms and releases the pre-measured dose into a small compartment. If the person does not take the medication out of the dispenser, a signal can then be sent to our 24/7 CareLink Monitoring Centre in Ireland if the dispenser is monitored. Our operators can then contact the person’s family or a carer, who can remind or assist the patient.
