The automatic dispenser of pills for people suffering from forgetfulness was developed by a student of the Novosibirsk State Technical University (NSTU). The device allows setting up a schedule for taking medicines and avoid their repeated use.
According to the creator of the device, a fourth-year student Vladimir Shperling, the prototype of the dispenser has a round shape, is made of plastic, and is able to rotate around an axis. It is assumed that a relative or nurse of a patient puts the pills in a dispenser with 24 sectors that can be closed with a padlock that blocks the possibility of taking pills for a person with memory loss.
The dispenser is connected to the Internet to set up and schedule the dispensing of medicines. On the website, you can configure the parameters, sound, and light indicators. According to the schedule, the dispenser will open the desired sector with tablets. It is specified that the pillbox works when connected to electricity, but at the moment an option of the operation with a battery is also being developed.
