Pivotell is the UK distributor of the Careousel® range of automatic pill dispensers manufactured by Pharmacell Medical Systems Ltd. Automatic pill dispensers are widely used throughout the UK, Scandinavia, the USA, the Middle East and New Zealand by both Social and Healthcare environments as a component of a care package for vulnerable patients who have difficulty managing their medication.
Automatic pill dispensers have been shown to have a dramatic impact upon medication compliance and safety for vulnerable adults, reducing the need for medication-prompting visits, paramedic call-outs, Accident and Emergency visits and hospital admissions, thus reducing the costs related to them.
Although the devices are aimed at people with poor memory such as those with Alzheimer’s and dementia, it also benefits patients with Parkinson’s, mental health issues, learning difficulties, patients with long-term conditions who have a daily pill regime and the visually impaired.
By partnering with BioCote®, Pharmacell and Pivotell introduced an additional feature to better service the users of their automatic pill dispensers. BioCote® Antimicrobial Technology reduces up to 99.99% of microbes on a protected surface, making the devices easier to keep hygienically clean and reducing the risk of infection caused by cross-contamination for vulnerable users, carers and family members alike.
BioCote®Antimicrobial Technology provides around the clock protection and doesn’t need an ‘on switch’. It has been proven both in laboratory and real-life environments to provide a broad spectrum antimicrobial benefit and has no additional maintenance needs.
