Interaction Design major project.
The project theme was Smart Health or eHealth for aged people to help them live independently. I decided to design a prescription medication dispenser that reminded the user when to take their medication. Similar products existed, but none of them dispensed the pill. They where only reminding devices.
My solution is the Med-e-Gear. Using a gear and ratchet system, it records when the user takes their medication. Prior to use, the users prescription data is programmed into the device. It holds one type of prescription medication. It dispenses one pill at at a time when the user turns the gear.
Fully functional prototype 3D printed and painted to replicate Rubber and Polypropylene.
