Helping Hand


Bang and Olufsen has developed this brilliant device, The Helping Hand, to aid patients in remembering to take their meds, and inform their doctors of their track record. Put in your blister pack (fully customizable) and it will send a signal to your computer or cell phone to remind you, using a red, yellow, or green signal.

If you have no problem remembering to take your drugs, you're in the minority. In a 2005 survey, nearly two-thirds (64%) of patients who were taking daily medication reported that they had forgotten to take their meds.

It has to be prescribed by your doctor; go to the site for more informatio on Medicom.
