Internet Connected Pill Dispenser
The P.I.L. Box – A Better Medication Reminder System Created by Tim Massaro as an Instructable.
Studies show the consequences of patients not taking medications according to doctor’s orders can be serious, especially in older patients.With today’s low cost micro-controllers and sensors (and the incentive of the Radio Shack / Instructables Micro Controller Contest) I thought there must be a better way to ensure my elderly relatives are taking their medications on schedule.
This Instructable describes how you can use a Parallax Propeller micro-controller to create the Propeller based Internet Logging Pill Dispenser…or the P.I.L Box for short.
