Abstract: Geriatrics rely on their medications to keep them healthy, but complex medication schedules can lead to mistakes like missing doses, taking incorrect amounts, or taking medicines at the wrong times. These mistakes could lead to unnecessary doctor or hospital visits, illness and even death. Hence there is a need to design a Medication Dispensing Device that can help Geriatrics to take medication on schedule. This would prevent unplanned hospital or doctor visits related to incorrect medication use. This paper proposes a design of a smart device which dispenses the medications on the prescribed schedule.
