Minder is a system that is made up of two accessories, a "HUB" where all the pills that the patient needs to take are stored and a "COMPANION" bracelet inside which the daily doses to be taken by the user are stored.
How does it work?
The user pours the pills into the upper part of the HUB, the cone that receives them, channels them towards readers that identify and manage each pill by its code, size and colour. Once the pill has been identified, it is distributed by type of medication within each of the 24 storage columns. These columns are part of a "carousel" that rotates on a vertical axis in both directions to position the desired pill on the dosage area towards the bracelet.
The bracelet is placed in the front area of the "HUB" around a disk, which rotates 360° to receive a pill in each of the 12 boxes that the bracelet has. This, in turn, is programmed based on the prescription sent by the doctor and once placed on the user's wrist, it vibrates and emits light every time the time for taking each medicine arrives. This same registers the time at which each medicine was taken and if the user does not take his dose, it issues an alert to the person in charge of the patient to remind him that he has not taken the dose for that time.
