Abstract

This paper proposes the design of Arduino ATmega based pill reminder which will help the patients to take their medicines in the correct quantity and at the prescribed time. Assistive technology is one such technology which can help an individual tremendously. But today only 2 out of 50 people are using assistive technology due to high cost, lack of knowledge on the subject and availability. By 2050, every 10 out of 20 households will need one assistive product with many elderly needing 2 or more. It is also seen that people give more attention to work than health. This system aims to reduce this problem by reminding them to take the medicine on time within the prescribed time. It is a combination of physical and digital reminder for a patient that will be helpful for people of any age, but especially helpful for geriatrics who forget taking their medicines. The main aim is to keep the system easy to handle and make it cost-efficient. This system uses Arduino, LCD display and Real Time Clock (RTC) module, RFID system and an alarm system used to intimate the patients to take proper dosage according to the prescription at right time. This portable and economical system would help aged patients, especially to the illiterate patients. Our, smart pillbox can reduce elderly family member’s responsibility towards by reminding them to take the medicine on time.
