Pill Dispensers / Bottles are no problem to open if you're 23 years old, but for a senior over the age of 50 that might be suffering from arthritis, it can be near impossible.
A redesign was in order for a dispenser for everyone.
1. For any senior, esspecially arthritis sufferers, it can be difficult and complicated
to open medication bottles / dispensers. My aim was to formulate a vibrant,
very easy to use and understand tablet dispenser.
> Only one movement needed to dispense tablet.
> Bright colors, so its always visible and easy to find.
> No efford and no bending of fingers needed.
> Safe for a family home, no sharp edges or detatchable parts.
> Can be stored on kitchen counter and used daily without having to
pack away in cupboard.
> Fully recyclable.
> Clear and big type on dispenser.
2. For this tablet dispenser, the price would be a little more than the average container.
It is driven by a mechanism inside for the release of the tablets and would add
to the production cost. The average 200 tablet dispenser in this class, costs around
R350 - R500. Cutting the need for packaging, as the dispenser is it’s own package
and only has 3x stickers on it, the price would be R400 - R450. Its a very unique design
and is definately worth the price. It is 100% recyclable plastic and if approved by the FDA,
refillable at local pharmacies.
3. The Dispencer is a semi rounded square shape with a soft rubber top that is
gentle on any hands. The rubber top is pushed down easily and the mechanism inside
releases a single tablet for every push. The tablets are released at the front bottom for
ease of use with one hand.
