Pill Dispenser Wireless Portable

A simple-to-use pill dispenser

The Adi PCB within the Pivotell/Careousel Advance Pill Dispenser enables independence for a person at home by prompting them to take their medication and by raising an alert should it not be taken within a prescribed time.

The Pill Dispenser is a monitored device designed to promote independence and well-being by ensuring medication adherence and correct dosage. It’s pre-loaded with medication and only releases the right pills at scheduled times, making others inaccessible. With 28 compartments for medication, the Pill Dispenser reduces the need for visits to supervise medication and enhances independence and quality of life. It may also lead to fewer hospitalisations, doctor visits, and better mental health for the user.

Alerts if medication is not taken at the correct time.

Who is it for?

The intended user is someone at home who requires assistance with medication. They may benefit from reminders or help to take the right medication and dosage, at the right time, especially when taking multiple medications throughout the day. A monitored medication reminder system can provide timely support with medication adherence or to resolve any issues or concerns the user may have when using an electronic dispensing system.

How it works

  1. Set up the Pill Dispenser with SEVEN.

  2. A pharmacy or service provider pre-loads medications into the Pill Dispenser and sets the dispensing times, which can be adjusted within a 5-minute to 5-hour window. We suggest a minimum 20-minute dispensing window.

  3. When it’s time for a dose, the Pill Dispenser rotates to present the medication, unlocks its cover, flashes a light, and sounds an alarm.

  4. The user picks up the dispenser and tips out the pills.

  5. SEVEN notifies the monitoring center when the dose is dispensed. The dispenser is then reset for the next dose.

  6. If a user hasn’t taken their medication halfway through the scheduled time, SEVEN plays a reminder message. If medication isn’t dispensed within 3 minutes after the reminder, the monitoring center is alerted for follow-up support.
