The new 'Pivotell Pager' Automatic Pill Dispenser offers substantial benefits for those on a regular pill regime who are deaf or have hearing impairment and also have difficulty remembering to take their medication. The dispenser provides important additional support the user, their families and carers.
The 'Pivotell Pager' dispenser has an integral transmitter which triggers an alarm (vibration, sound or flashing light) on any of the Bellman® Visit 868 System receivers to alert the user that it is time to take their medication.
The Pager is for those who are deaf or with hearing impairment who are taking time sensitive medication, who have some confusion (e.g. early dementia), or perhaps learning difficulties and cannot hear the alarm of a Pivotell Mk 3/11 or Pivotell Plus dispenser.
The dispenser can hold up to 28 days' supply of medication depending on how frequently medication is taken each day. When it is time to take medication the Pivotell Pager’s internal tray rotates, the alarm sounds and the light flashes. The integral transmitter will activate Bellman® Visit 868 receivers in range which will vibrate or flash to alert the user that it is time to take their medication. The user then simply picks up the dispenser and tilts it to take the medication in the hand or suitable container. This cancels the alarm and flashing light. The vibrating alarm on the receiver can be cancelled by pressing the button on the receiver.
