Improving the independent lifestyle for the elderly
One way of helping the elderly to maintain an independent lifestyle as long as possible is to assist them in taking their medicines.In Finland there is a new solution that helps the elderly and other groups with permanent medication to remember when to take the correct medicines.
The Evondos Automatic Medication Service uses the latest technology and mobile communication. It consists of three elements. First, the automatic dose dispensing of the medicines, second the automatic medicine dispenser and thirdly the telecare system. The system monitors that the dispenser is working correctly and that medicines are taken at the right time.
The system also allows the elderly to move around more freely as the they can bring their system to the summer house or print pill bags in advance when going on a travel short trip.
