Full Invention Name:
The RxEMINDER - the prescription electronic minder
We are a team of Girl Scouts from two towns, 4 schools, 7 different troops, and grades ranging from 4th- 8th. At the start of the season we had more girls than spots. We started a second team, Dream Green Machine, in order to include as many girls as possible. Green Machine shared our field trips, mentors, knowledge, and bought the second team equipment since they are starting from scratch. Two of the Green Machine veterans stepped forward to become Mentors in Training so two new girls could experience FLL. We are also mentoring the BenderBots, Bonk-a-bots, and Gear Girls. In our daily lives, Green Machine members exhibit Core Values by working hard to help others discover FIRST and to promote girls and STEM. Recently we held a donation drive to help seniors affected by Hurricane Sandy and helped with FTC scrimmage Cookie Carnage. We get distracted at practices because we all have such fun together. We also love funny hats!
Brief Submission Description:
To use the RxEMINDER simply open a compartment, pour in your medicine, and scan the label. Set your time on the touch screen and the alarms are set. When it’s time, push a cup against the lever and all the pills set for that time will dispense at once. If you have to take an over-the-counter medication, you can check to see if it will interact with your medication. An RFID security and alarm system ensures that no matter where you are in your home or garden, you’ll hear, see, and or feel the alarm. It’s secure so pets and children can’t play with the RxEMINDER either, but a caretaker can still get the medicine if the senior can’t get to the machine. You can send reports to caretakers and doctors via Bluetooth. There’s also a convenient vacation pack which uses just the pager pin as the alarm.
