Antimicrobial Pill Dispensers
For patients with a complicated pill regime, medicine compliance can be extremely difficult. Health professionals have been aware for many years that non-compliance can result in unnecessary ill-health to the user and significant additional costs to healthcare and social services.
With this in mind, Pharmacell developed automatic pill dispensers: a care solution designed for simplifying the maintenance of a complicated pill regime. Created with a focus on the needs of the user, the dispensers enable self-medication via a timed and secure schedule, reducing and in some cases avoiding the need for a carer or a family member to be present on every occasion that medication is due.
The automatic pill dispenser is an effective tool when administering medication to vulnerable users, such as the elderly. With options of an alarm to signify the release of a dose, and the ability to record missed medication, the pill dispenser promotes and supports independent living and a higher quality of life.
Pharmacell have taken the care of vulnerable users to a whole new level by partnering with BioCote® to create an antimicrobial pill dispenser. BioCote® Antimicrobial Technology actively reduces the number of microbes on the protected surface, making the dispenser easier to keep hygienically clean and reducing the risk of cross-contamination. The reduction of microbes means the potential for infection of both the vulnerable user and the carer or family member handling the device has been significantly reduced.
BioCote® Antimicrobial Technology provides around the clock antimicrobial protection, and will continue to protect the device from microbial colonisation for its expected lifetime- and beyond! The technology does not leach, and will have no effect whatsoever on the vital medication contained in the device. The increased hygiene of the dispenser is yet another excellent feature and capability, making it the number one choice for medicine management for vulnerable users.
