Some patients do not maintain an identical daily agenda (they do NOT take their medications at the same time every day) and find it more practical to use an interval timer a.k.a. countdown timer.
Interval Timer / Count Down Timer
With an e-pill interval timer you set the desired 'interval time' between medications. A patient would set the number of hours and minutes from the current time for when they will need to take their medications for that day. The e-pill device will then start a contdown to when it is time to take their medications. Due to some patients not being on an identical daily agenda, an e-pill interval timer will need to be set each morning for that day's medication schedule.
e-pill Medication Reminders is Boston based medical device company. Since 1999 e-pill timers, alarm watches, pill boxes with alarms and pill dispensers have helped patients around the world remember to take medications on time (improve medication adherence / patient compliance).
