Because Taiwan’s health insurance is very cheap, people are wasteful use of medicine. According to statistics, there are over 193 metric tons of waste every year, which causes ecological and environmental pollution, which seriously affects people ’s health.
In response to the above problems, we have designed a set of products that can solve the problem of drug abuse in Taiwan from the use, storage and recycling of medicine.
First of all, in terms of taking medicine, in order to solve the problem that users may forget to take the medicine, the medicine box is combined with the mobile phone case, moreover, the mobile phone App image and ringtone are used to remind the user to avoid the user taking the wrong medicine or forgetting to take it.
Second of all, in terms of drug storage, in order to solve the problem of inadvertently eating outdated medicine and medicine over storage, place management box at home is used for drug classification and management, and the box is linked with the mobile phone app. When users go out to buy medicine, they can know the medicine information and quantity from the app.
Third of all, In terms of medicine recycling, the recycle box is located near the drugstore to increase the convenience of dispose medicine. Furthermore, there is a screen on the recycle box will play a video of promoting medicine recycle to remind the importance of user’s mind. In addition, because there is a needle recycle area, in order to prevent criminal behavior, a lockable anti-theft mechanism is designed.
