Getting ready for Milestone 3

By Stefania Sergi March 22, 2019 Discover Heptabox project

Dear readers,

We are getting ready for Milestone 3 which will take place on April 2.

This week we agreed on the design of the prototype and on the distribution of the drugs.

We decided that our first prototype will have removable compartments that will rotate. To be sure that the pills are taken by the right person, every compartment has magnets that will open the box when the patient needs to take its medicines.

We defined also that our device will not be removable but transportable. For this reason, we have to take into consideration the size and the weight to make the pill dispenser as easy as possible to carry anywhere.

Regarding the charge, we decided to have an electrical support on the base (as a kettle) to recharge the pill dispenser. In this way, the patient does not need to unplug the device to take it anywhere.

Stay tuned!
