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. 

What's Included?

  • 1 x Pill Dispenser
  • 4 x AA Batteries
  • 1 x Key (for locking/unlocking the dispenser)
  • 1 x Set of Instructions

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.

Tabtime Pill Disoenser
04 March 2022  |  Thomas

Having seen the reviews for the product, I bought it. The things that I needed was a loud alarm (which the details assured me it was as did the reviews) for my elderly Alzheimer suffering, hard of hearing mother.
The product does not deliver in this respect. The 'noise' from the dispenser is limited at best. My hearing is ok and I can hardly hear it.
Not easy to set up from the instructions.
Not a great buy.

Hi Thomas,

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review with us. We're sorry to hear you're not satisfied with your purchase.

The Tabtime Medelert Pill Dispenser and Reminder is designed with elderly users in mind and rings at approximately 83 decibels which is adjudged a loud enough level for use with hard of hearing individuals.

Unfortunately, as it is difficult to judge anothers hearing, it is also difficult to gauge the true level of the sound generated. Sadly what is an appropriate ringing volume for one user may only faintly register with another.

Again, we are sorry you're not happy with your purchase and thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us.

Kind regards,

Tab Time
15 July 2021  |  Clyde

Excellent...A really good design tweak would be to allow the service users to see their medication with a see through cover...This would support e g dementia patients alot more in transitioning from see through blister packs to your device etc

My sister in law had struggled to remember to take her tablets at the right time if at all. With this amazing pill box she is taking all her medication at the correct time of day and both she and I are very happy with it.

Just what the doctor ordered!
26 May 2020  |  Valarie

I bought this on behalf of my mother, who was having difficulty sequencing her tablets, despite having them delivered in a blister pack. This is ideal, as you can set up to six timers per day (we use 4) and the tablets are secure until dispensed. So far we have had 100% success which is a huge relief. I fill up the dispenser once a week, lock it up and thatís the job done, I also bought a spare carousel and locking key should I need a somebody else to fill these for me. Would highly recommend if you have similar circumstances.

Tab- time
02 September 2018  |  Geraldine

I purchased the tab time, it arrived very promptly. I tried to set it up using the guide. Then set an alarm to try it out before giving to my dad. Unfortunately I couldnt cancel this alarm and found the instructions not clear at all on cancelling of resetting. I contacted office and found limited hours, but emailed them as suggested.
They called me back very promptly. After talking with a very helpful and friendly man, who solved my problem easily, it now works.
My dad it delighted with his tab-time.
