MediSpencer is a sophisticated medication management system that supports independent living amongst the elderly. It removes any issues of dexterity, a common concern amongst the elderly, when it comes to taking medication. All they need to do is confirm the dispensing of their medication, take their pills from the cup, and return the cup for the next dose.

Using an app, family and carers can get instant feedback from MediSpencer. They will know if medication has been missed and be able to phone their loved one to remind them to take their medication. It will alert family members when it is running low on medication and through a set of simple instructions it will direct them through the refilling process.
