If you are caring for someone and wish to be kept informed immediately that the person you are caring for has or has not taken their medication, then the Pivotell Advance GSM is an excellent solution.

Quantity:

The dispenser sends text messages to up to three family members or carers to confirm that medication has or has not been dispensed from the device at the medication time. If necessary, this enables appropriate action to be taken to check on the wellbeing of the user before a potentially adverse event occurs.

If the user has a mobile phone he or she can be sent one of the warning messages. The Advance GSM dispenser will also send an additional e-mail to one family member or carer.

The full list of warning messages are:

  • Dose not taken (if not tipped, one halfway through the alarm time and one at the end of the alarm time)
  • Dose Dispensed
  • 4 doses only remaining in the medication tray
  • Dispenser has been left upside down
  • Low battery
  • Device error

Pivotell® Advance GSM Automatic Pill Dispenser

The Pivotell Advance GSM dispenser includes all of the enhanced security and display features of the Pivotell Advance dispenser and a GSM module which transmits text messages to up to three designated contacts (typically family members) and an e-mail if medication has not been dispensed from the device at the medication time. This enables appropriate action to be taken to check on the wellbeing of the individual before a potentially adverse event occurs.

It can be easily filled and programmed by the user, relative, carer or pharmacist to dispense pills up to 24 times a day. At the pre-programmed times, the dispenser rotates, the alarm signal is heard, and the correct dosage comes into view through the opening in the lid. The alarm can be programmed to ring for up to 5 hours.

Security - a self-locking shutter over the lid opening prevents access to the medication tray except at the alarm time. This prevents the possibility of double dosing or the forced movement of the medication tray by the user.

Display - the LCD display is visible though the lid.

Start Delay and Stop functions - Delays activation or deactivates dispenser - useful for those using multiple dispensers and to allow pharmacists or family members to fill in advance away from home.

Upside-down - the tray will not rotate if upside down. When upright it will move to the correct dose for the time & date at the next alarm time.

This also allows for the possibility that the dispenser could be transported upside down. If a dosage time occurs when the dispenser is upside down it will alarm as usual but the tray will not move forward. If the dispenser is upside down for some time the dispenser will record on how many occasions it should have rotated and when returned to the upright position will move to the correct position for the next scheduled dose so that the correct medication for that time will be presented.

The Administration Centre

The dispenser is programmed online using the Pivotell Administration Centre. The Administration Centre provides reports on the user's Medication Compliance, for example, it records the actual times when medication has been dispensed and when warning messages such as 'Dose not taken' have been sent. The full communications history between the device and the Administration Centre can be monitored.
