A Clock for the Health Conscious

Oct 15, 2013 04:33PM ● Published by Scott Blackwell

Patients or their caretakers can load an entire month’s worth of medicines

It’s one of life’s cruel injustices – those who most need to take medication on a precise schedule are also those least capable of remembering.

Inventor Martin Cooper watched his father forget his medicines, and then faint because of it. So the son came up with the MedCenter System.

Patients or their caretakers can load an entire month’s worth of medicines into 31 different containers, each stamped with a date, green side up. Place the container with the current date next to a clock at the front of the MedCenter. The clock can be simply programmed up to four times a day to verbally remind a person to take his medicine.

“Good morning. Please take your morning pills for the 25th,” the clock says, for example. After taking the pills, press the red clock button; and the clock is ready for the next reminder. When the day’s pills are taken, place the container back in a vertical position; this time red side up to show it’s empty.

The system sells for about $70 through many retailers. For more information, visit medcentersystems.com
