A company called e-pill, LLC worked with Parkinson’s patients to develop two other pill-reminder devices that caught my eye. These are the “Six-Alarm Vibration or Sound Medication Reminder Watch” and the “Multi-Alarm Pill Box Timer”. View their range of devices at www.medclock.com. The six-alarm vibrating watch, which is disguised as a handsome sports-watch, discreetly allows you to be out and about, and reminds you that it is time for your medications. The alarm can be set to either vibrate or to produce a sound.
The “Multi-Alarm Pill Box Timer”, tested by a panel of Parkinson’s patients, has a built-in pillbox and has switches that slide when programming it. These switches slide making it easier to program than using the buttons found on other models. Up to thirty-six reminders can be programmed.
