The Grand Challenge our group chose to face this semester is to improve medication adherence among patients with cognitive impairment causing memory loss. Our solution to this grand challenge was to create a pill dispensing apparatus that will dispense medication on a fixed time interval. Our compact design allows the user to fill the dispenser with a weeks worth of medication and inform the user if their medication has already been administered. We believe our pill dispensing apparatus will improve the rate of daily medication adherence in patients with symptoms of dementia and potentially allow users to live independently without the need for a caretaker.
