Pill dispensing organizational system
The St. Ursula Academy InvenTeam invented a pill dispensing organizational system for users in a home setting. The device rations out correct dosages for up to eight medications from their original containers, which assists individuals who are having difficulty managing their medications on their own. A pill is released within two seconds when its specific button is pressed. Users can set up to ten pill alerts per day. A light alerts them when it is time to take their pills, resulting in minimal caregiver supervision. This device will be easier to use than existing dispensers on the market, and will be significantly less expensive.
