Locked Automatic Pill Dispenser
What is an Automatic Pill Dispenser?
Time-released Medicine Dispenser
Our Automatic Pill Dispenser / Automatic Pill Box / Electronic Pill Dispenser is a simple, easy-to-use device that only allows patients access to the right dose of medication at the right time
. They are programmed to release medications (one or multiple times per day) on the same daily schedule each day.
The machine will play a melody when it is time for patients to take their medication and a light on top of the device will flash. They can then dispense medication for that time by turning the device 90 degrees. The machine is locked, so the patient cannot access the previous or the next dose.

How Do The Pill Organizer Reminders Work?
When the scheduled time arrives, the inside tray will rotate and the alarm is turned on. Once the dispenser is turned upside-down (and the meds pour out landing in the patient's other open hand) the alarm is automatically shut off.
If the patient does not take their medication right away the alarm will continue for 30-60 minutes depending on the model.
If the patient is using the e-pill CompuMed the medication will fall into a pill-drawer, which can then be removed. The alarm on this machine will continue to sound ('never stops') until the medication is removed.
