e-pill Medication Reminders (Wellesley, Mass) has released a new drug dispenser for people with disabilities with poor hand dexterity. The e-pill Station is a fully stand-alone device that easily dispenses pills into a metal cup.
The patient, who might have Parkinson’s, arthritis, or another debilitating disease, simply pulls on the large handle to tip the dispenser and pour the pills into a metal cup below. The pills were already organized inside the device and readied for the patient to take at that specific time. If the pills are not removed, an alarm sounds to get the attention of the patient or caregiver to take the pills at the right time.
