Med-Time XL

Marketed by:

e-pill Medication Reminders (Wellesley, MA)

E-pill’s line of medication reminders, automatic dispensers, and storage devices features a variety of tools to help patients adhere to their medications. The Med-Time XL is a popular choice among seniors for its simplicity and capacity to handle complex medication schedules. Patients or caregivers simply load the medication tray and set up to 28 daily dosing times, turn the key to lock the medications inside, and leave the rest up to the dispenser. When the programmed alarm sounds, the carousel shifts the appropriate medication into position, where it can be easily retrieved by flipping the lightweight unit. A blinking red light and loud alarm sound make the device suitable for patients with hearing or visual impairments. Each compartment within the tray holds the equivalent of 15 aspirin-sized tablets, pills, or capsules. The Med-Time XL can store and dispense up to 4 weeks’ worth of medicines without refilling, depending on the number of dosing times needed per day.
