How it works
The Automatic Medication Dispenser allows users to access their correct dosage of medication, at the appropriate time of day or night, whilst also keeping other pills locked out of sight. At a pre-programmed time, the Automatic Medication Dispenser will sound an alarm (and flashing light) to remind the user to take their medication, at this point the unit will also rotate the compartment so that the medication can be accessed.
When the user tips the unit to retrieve the medication the alarm and flashing light will cancel.
Battery operated with 4 x AAA batteries included.
