Audio Visual Alerts
Two Systems of Reminders
There are two reminder systems that are installed in the MedFolio Pillbox to provide signals for scheduled medication doses.
- Audio Alerts – At the time of a scheduled medication dose, the MedFolio Pillbox will emit an auditory beep every 2-3 seconds.
- Visual Lighting Alerts – Along with the audio alert signal, the green circle on the front side of the MedFolio Pillbox will illuminate at the time of a scheduled medication dose. When the lid of the pillbox is opened, the compartment of the pill storage box that contains the medications for that scheduled dose will also be illuminated.
Auto Shut off After 2 Hours
After the medications have been consumed, the audio alert and visual lighting system can be physically turned off and they will remain off until the time of the next scheduled medication dose. Otherwise, the audio alert and visual lighting system will continue to be activated and will automatically shut off after 2 hours.
There is a 2-hour time frame in order for patients/caregivers to remember to take their medications before it is considered a missed dose.
