Reminder to take medicine at the right time

Assistive device reminds user to take his medicine on time

Description
A programmable electric unit (made in-house) is connected to a solenoid switch. The switch sits on the kitchen drawer where the medicine dosette is stored (see photo no. 2). The unit is programmed to flash when it is time for the user to take medicine. When the user opens the kitchen drawer to get the dosette the unit stops flashing. The unit is located under the edge of the upper cabinet so it is easy to see (photo no. 1).

Authors comments
The unit can be programmed to indicate how often and when to remind the user to take the medicine.
