It’s an automated system that helps track the medication a patient has taken. It uses face recognition combined with a predefined schedule that reminds you when it’s time to take your medication. It can even be combined with an automated pill dispenser that will hand out the correct amount of medication at the scheduled time.
This is perfect for people suffering from Alzheimer’s that are keen to take their medication but can’t always remember to do so. Combining this with a SMS/TEXT message the patient can be reminded when it’s time to take their medication and an alert can also be sent to medical staff if the patient is running behind schedule.
By using face recognition this system can be used by multiple patients at the same time making things a bit easier for patients and staff.
