HOW IT WORKS

A lockable lid covers the device to prevent taking incorrect medications or at the wrong time. The dispenser turns along based on a set schedule and moves a tray prefilled with medicine the where it is accessible and which then triggers an audible alarm and flashing lights. Once the device is turned over to dispense the medications the alarm notification is automatically turned off.

REAL WORLD USE CASES

Some ways GMS Med-e-lert could be configured for the safety of an elderly person living alone:

  • The dispenser can manage medications for individuals with Alzheimer’s or other dementia, vision loss, or those with complex medication regimens.
  • Medications  that had previously been missed or taken at the wrong time are securely locked and only accessible at the dosage time to prevent errors
