Dosell is a patented drug dispenser that can be used when medicating patients at home via remote monitoring by a responsible doctor, healthcare staff or relatives.
Dosell is under development. A number of Swedish municipalities have already ordered Dosell. Read more at www.dosell.se
Dosell reminds patients when to take medication and triggers an alarm if a patient fails to do so.
The product is equipped with a motor and clock that makes it possible to automate the dispensing of tablets at pre-set times. It is also provided with sound and light signals that remind patients to take their medication.
An average of FIVE elderly people die and a further 300 are admitted to hospital every day in Sweden due to errors in the administration of prescription drugs.
As Dosell is connected to the Internet, this will allow the online remote monitoring of many conditions from healthcare centres in future. Conditions such as heart failure, diabetes, renal failure and dementia can be treated from the home assuming early symptoms/values are identified.
With an Internet connection via Dosell in the home, homecare can be developed into modern, safe and secure healthcare provision. Dosell is set to prevent extensive suffering and generate considerable cost savings.
