Manufacturer's product description

The Pivotell Advance GSM dispenser includes all of the enhanced security and display features of the Pivotell Advance dispenser and a GSM module which transmits text messages to up to three designated contacts (typically family members) and an e-mail if medication has not been dispensed from the device at the medication time. This enables appropriate action to be taken to check on the wellbeing of the individual before a potentially adverse event occurs.

It can be easily filled and programmed by the user, relative, carer or pharmacist 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.
