The MedReady Automatic Medication Dispenser is a lockable pill organizer with alarm that helps prevent medication mistakes, like double dosing.
Confused about whether you've already
taken your medication or vitamins?
Did I take those morning pills? Double dosing on medication is a problem for people with memory issues or a complicated medication routine. This lockable medication dispenser will prevent medication mistakes like overdosing. It also serves as a pill reminder.
Store up to four weeks worth of medication, set up to 4 daily alarms, and let this automatic pill dispenser do the rest.
The pill tray has 28 compartments that can be filled with medication. Each compartment is 1" x 0.5" x 0.75" and can hold pills of varying combinations of sizes, such as:
3 large tablets, 2 large capsules and 2 small tablets
or 8 large capsules
or 12 medium tablets
How the MedReady Automatic Pill Dispenser With Alarm works:
As the alarm goes off, the tray advances one compartment, allowing you access to the medication in that compartment. If you use one daily alarm, the tray's 28 compartments can be used as a monthly pill organizer.
If you use two daily alarms and the tray can hold two weeks worth of medication.
If you use three daily alarms and the tray can hold 9 days of medications.
If you use four daily alarms and the tray can hold one week's worth of medication.
If you miss a medication time, the tray will advance at the next scheduled alarm. This will prevent double dosing and medication errors.
The pill dispenser alarms set easily, just like an alarm clock. The only way to turn the alarm off is to open the door to the medication compartment. The standard alarm rings for 30 minutes, but this alarm can also be limited to 3, 45, 60 or 250 minutes. (The door will close automatically when the next alarm sounds.)
MedReady is tamper-resistant. Instead of employing a latch, the system utilizes a real lock and key, and the edges are secure. This deters "fiddling" with the medications by people with Alzheimer's or other memory issues.

The MedReady is available with a red indicator light that flashes when the alarm goes off.
The MedReady with Flashing Light (DL6217) is helpful to anyone who is hearing impaired as well as Alzheimer's patients who respond to visual cues instead of audio ones.
The Basic MedReady and the MedReady with Light can also come with a lower frequency alarm. That means that the alarm sound has a lower pitch which is easier to hear for someone who has trouble hearing higher pitched sounds, like children's voices. In this situation, although the tone is not louder, the lower frequency is almost like turning up the volume.

MedReady with Light and Lower Frequency: DL6217LF

|Product Weight||2.65 lb|
|Warranty||1 Year Manufacturer's Warranty|
|Batteries/Electric||AC Power. In the event of a power outage, or short-term travel, it switches automatically to battery backup. When fully charged the batteries will last up to 72 hours. Rechargeable batteries included.|
|Medical Restrictions||While the MedReady prevents double dosing with proper use, it is possible for medications to be taken too close together. For example, if the alarm times are 2 pm and 5 pm, the medications from 2 pm are available until the carousel tray turns again at 5 pm. So the pills could be taken at 4:30 pm and then again at 5 pm.|
"I'm a registered nurse who works with individuals who are developmental disabled. Some of my clients live independently and only need a small amount of assistance. The area that they most need assistance in is remembering to take their meds. The medication dispenser has helped my clients be able to remain living independently. The alarm is loud enough so that they have to take their meds on time to turn it off. It is a great product and very easy to use. Thank You." C.V., Joliet, IL
"This product has been a godsend! Keeping my mother-in-law from over- or under-medicating herself has made the difference for her in being able to remain in her independent living situation. The alarm is the right loudness to remind without startling. The locking feature prevents overmedication. Worth the price! Thank you! " A.P., Atlanta, GA
