Deadline: Aug. 15
CYCO is an automated medication scheduler that takes the guesswork out of taking prescription medication. The device shows users what medication needs to be taken at what time and keeps track of each time the medication is taken or missed. Medication adherence can also be shared with loved through and caregivers through a mobile application.
The device can be set up in a few minutes. It features a rotational cap, cap opening and an interchangeable medication layer. There is a correct dose LED with a status LED and a multi-function button.
Automated dose scheduling can be set up by entering the name, dosage and frequency of the prescribed medication and the CYCO device will generate a schedule. The LED indicator light will show the correct compartment that the medication is in and will illuminate when it is time to take the medication. The dual sensor system will detect if medicine is taken from the correct slot. An audible alert will sound if the dispenser is turned in the wrong direction to the wrong medication compartment.
