For a lot of senior citizens of our society, taking medications is a necessity. Although necessary,it can be tedious sometimes. More often, these patients forget to take pills due to Memory Loss. Is there any product to tackle this problem or any such product can be designed?, Please suggest your valuable suggestion, Thanks
In college I was in a group that actually attempted to solve this exact issue for a design class. A pill dispenser with different reservoirs for each medication and an arduino programmed to dispense set quantities of each pill at specified times with a loud alarm that is impossible to ignore. The challenge is in mechanically dispensing individual pills of varying geometry. Overall the system is pretty cheap, our prototype maybe cost $50.
