The MD2 medication dispenser is an automated medication dispenser that dispenses medication in a cup and has a built in telephone monitoring system. The unit dispenses up to 60 doses per load (6X per day for 10 days OR 1X per day for 60 days, ect) with variable capacity and requires periodic refills based upon the clients medication schedule.
The MD2 Medication Management System automatically dispenses the proper medication at the right time. All other medication is locked in a tamper proof medication dispenser cup and lid for future use. At Preset times medication is automatically dispensed in its own lid and cup into an easily accessed drawer.
The machine is capable of serving as a reminder device without dispensing medication or both dispensing medication and a reminder device at the same time. The system allows for 24 hour monitoring, relying upon a family member or caregiver network of designated responders and/or allows for a support center attendant response to ensure patient compliance. When the device is monitored detailed reports regarding patient medication administration is available. The MD2 may also be used as a PERS device, allowing verbal communication between the client and the response center activated through a pendant or wrist band.
When the medication dispenser cup is locked in the device, the keypad is also electronically disabled. The device cannot be reprogrammed or instructions changed without a key. All other medicine is locked out and only available at the correct time or when accessed with a key.
The MD2 Medication Reminder
When medicine is dispensed, a voice comes on advising the customer to take their medication, a red flashing light also displays for the hearing impaired. You can also program in other messages to be played at the same time as the medication is dispensed, or at different times during the day.
