Tabtime Mark 2 Medelert Pill Dispenser and Reminder
Remembering when to take your daily medication is hard enough, but if you suffer from dementia it can become significantly more problematic. As we grow older, our memory may not be as sharp as it once was, making keeping track of when to take your medication increasingly difficult. It can also be a struggle if you are visually impaired and are unable to clearly see when you're next due to take your pill or tablet.
The TabTime Mark 2 Medelert Pill Dispenser and Reminder is designed to make life that little bit easier. Whether you have a mental or visual impairment, are caring for someone who does, or are just forgetful from time to time, you can really benefit from this product. Timed for release, it automatically dispenses the right dosage exactly when you're required to take it, allowing you to safely control your medication.
How Does the Weekly Pill Dispenser and Reminder Work?
The Tabtime Medelert Dispenser can carry a full week's medication, able to dispense pills up to four times a day depending on your needs. It's easily filled with the necessary medication and programmed by the user or a carer.
At the pre-programmed times, the dispenser will rotate and signal a sounding alarm and flashing light, handy if you're either visually impaired or hard of hearing. When it's time to take the pill, the correct dosage will come into view through an opening in the lid.
The Medelert Dispenser is also lockable, meaning the medication is kept safely out of the way to reduce the risk of an accidental overdose. If you are caring for someone who may become confused or forgetful, you can keep hold of the key and feel safe in the knowledge that your patient or loved one cannot access an incorrect dosage.
What are the Dimensions of Each Compartment?
The dimensions of each individual pill compartment are as follows:
- Individual compartment dimensions (LxWxD): 3.5 x 1.5 x 3cm
How Loud Is the Medelert Pill Dispenser?
The alert and reminder function on the Medelert Pill Dispenser rings at a volume of approximately 83dB. This ensures that the user can hear the device loud and clear.
