At pre-programmed times the pill dispenser carousel rotates to allow the user to take the appropriate medication. An audible alert tone is provided as a medication reminder. The unit knows the medication has been removed from the dispenser when it is tipped up, so if the medication has not been taken after a pre-set time the lid closes and a radio link to the carephone will automatically call the control centre or carer.

Dimensions – diameter 180mm, depth 47mm
