Making sure that someone has taken their medication can be stressful, especially when you are supporting someone at a distance.
The Pivotell Advance GSM pill dispenser can be easily filled, and programmed online 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. 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. The dispenser can send alert messages to family members if medication has, or has not been dispensed from the device at the medication time so that appropriate action is taken to check on the wellbeing of the individual before a potentially adverse event occurs.
Now, using the Jointly app, families can receive and store these messages in one central place, and share them with everyone involved in someone’s care. Alert messages can be sent in the following instances to your Jointly circle:
The Pivotell Advance GSM pill dispenser can also send SMS messages to up to three mobile numbers, and to one e-mail address (& if the user has a mobile phone he or she could be sent one of the warning messages).
Developed by Carers UK Jointly is an online and mobile care coordination application designed to make caring for someone easier, less stressful and more organised by making communication and coordination between those who share the care as easy as a text message. Jointly combines a number of key features in a single tool and helps keep everyone in the loop. Find out more about Jointly here or watch this video to see how it works:
Choose 'Add Jointly app' at checkout. All you will need to do is wait for an email to arrive with the details of your newly created Jointly circle of care, then you can login to Jointly and start using the app.
The dispenser is programmed online using the Pivotell Administration Centre, which 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.
A roaming SIM card is supplied with the Pivotell GSM dispenser which will pick up the best mobile network signal in any given area. This requires the Pivotell GSM dispenser to be located in an area with at least one active mobile network.
