Abstract

In this study, dementia and Alzheimer patients that suffer from frequently forgeting the names and timing of their medications are considered and a new arduino based electronic pillbox is designed. This system is also found convenient for nursing homes and houses for aged people where mainly dementia patients live together. At the same time, it is possible that this system may provide great ease for pharmacies.
