The Evondos® E300 medicine dispensing robot helps those in need of long term medication
The E300 medicine dispensing robot, located in the client’s home, is a personal and reliable aid for those in need of long term medication, as it eliminates the concerns caused by managing complex medical treatment.
Medicine dispensing robot that revolutionizes medical treatment
The client may use a number of different medicines that need to be taken several times a day, which means that it is not always easy to remember whether the medicine has been taken or not.
The Evondos medicine dispensing robot eliminates this concern as it ensures that the right medicine is served to the patient at the right time and in the right dosage. This happens regardless of the caregiver’s busy schedule or without the patient needing to remember to take the medicine.
The medicine dispensing robot makes sure that the medicine is taken at the correct time. The robot offers clear instructions on how to take the medicine. As the medication is taken according to the prescription, the quality of life is improved, and the sense of independence is enhanced as the persons in need of long-term medication can manage their medication independently.
The robot is placed in in a familiar place at home, typically in the bedroom or kitchen, where the patient is spending time each day.
The Evondos E300 medicine dispensing robot’s use and operation
The Evondos E300 medicine dispensing robot utilizes the pharmacy provided multi-dose sachets. The home care personnel refill the robot.
The robot uses an internet connection for data transfer and the Telecare System used by the caregiver.
1. The care giver collects the Multi-Dose sachets from the pharmacy and loads the robot regularly.
The care organization makes sure that the automatic medicine dispensing robot has always has medicine to dispense. The pharmacy provides the Multi-Dose sachets with the right doses of the medicine prescribed by a doctor. The care giver brings the patient specific, prescribed multi-dose medicine sachets from the pharmacy and loads them in the automatic medicine dispenser in the person’s home.
When the Multi-Dose sachets are running out, the robot automatically sends the care giver a reminder of the need to refill the device. The medicine dispensing robot is loaded approximately once a fortnight. The refilling can be done flexibly thanks to the device having two separate medicine chambers.
This way, the medicine never runs out, even by accident.
2. The medicine dispensing robot ensures error-free dispensing of medicine.
The medicine dispensing robot manages patient’s medicine taking by directing that the right medicine is taken at the right time and in the right dose. The robot reminds the client clearly and audibly in the client’s own language to take the individual dose of medication. The same reminder also appears on the device’s display.
All the client needs to do is press the green button on the robot and the device dispenses an easy-to-open medicine sachet. The robot also pre-opens the sachet.
If the medicine sachet is not taken despite three clear reminders, the dispenser locks the dose in a separate chamber so that the medicine is not taken at the wrong time. A message stating that the medicine was taken or not taken is automatically dispatched to the care organisation or a family member.
3. The robot communicates with the caregiver’s Telecare System.
The Telecare System, which is connected to the robot via internet, enables the caregiver to receive automatic and uninterrupted information about patient’s medicine taking, and alerts if the medicine is not taken. In this way, the robot acts as a communication device between the client, care givers and, if needed, family members. It is also possible to send short text reminders from Telecare System to the robot. The reminder messages can be taking medicine not included in the dose dispensing, or to remind the patient to take regular snack or liquid.
