Automated Medicine Assistant (A.M.A)
Healthcare is a global problem, countries big or small face this issue of providing ideal healthcare countrywide hence with the theme of coding with health in this makex competition I propose a solution to providing Elderly healthcare through technology. For my Project i aim to help elderly people who as their health deteriorates experience poor sight, over-dependency and loss of memory.
The Halocode goes from an idle state to an active state by shaking it. In the Active state it displays the status of the medicines taken during the day Once the medicines for a set time has been taken, the user simply touches the corresponding touch pad. A.M.D consists of two parts: a)medicine dispensing: The place where medicines are sorted and dispensed. b)Medicine collection: The place where medicines are collected after sorting A.M.D has two modes that it can be operated in: 1.Standalone In the standalone mode the user must be physically present to operate the A.M.D device. The dispensing is initiated by engaging the ultrasonic sensor. 2.Remote The A.M.D can also be operated remotely through the A.M.A interface. In this mode users have the option to dispense once for a day’s worth of medicine or a week’s worth. Majority of elders that cross the age of fifty suffer from long-sightedness (hypermetropia), meaning that near objects appear blurry The purpose of the A.I med reader was to help the elderly identifying the medicines. A.I.M uses image recognition to identify the name of the medicine as it appears on the box. Text to speech is then used to give a detailed description of the medicine which includes dosage net weight and any allergic reactions
