MedMinder Pill Dispenser Interface Design
Med Minder is an automatic smart pill dispenser for the elderly. It comes with a supplementary mobile app. The project involves creating high-fidelity mockups of the interface for the pill dispenser. The mobile app will monitor the activities of the pill dispenser when used by the user. The mobile app and the pill dispenser will communicate with each other to make sure the users take the right medication at the right time, and to provide information for caregivers.
Smart devices like MedMinder’s pill dispenser are providing more and more ease, precaution, and convenience for the elderly and their caregivers. MedMinder pill dispensers remind the users to take their medications with a series of visual and/or auditory alerts. First the pill compartment will flash, then the pill dispenser will beep, and then the user will received a phone reminder, and the caregivers will be notified via the mobile app. If no further actions are taken, caregivers will be notified via phone, email and text message.
