PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main objective of this project is to design a programmable medication reminder system for patients to get the reminder of the medicine with a buzzing sound as well as to display the name of the medicine to be taken at that time.

In general, most of the patients forget to take the appropriate prescribed medication at the specified time. This creates a big problem as it affects the timely dosage required for the patient, which eventually prolongs the illness and the recovery process gets delayed. It is difficult for the doctors/paramedics/attenders to monitor patients round the clock. In order to avoid these problems, a programmable medication remainder system can be developed for reminding patients who forget to take their medicine on time.

The proposed system uses a microcontroller of the 8051 family and a battery for power supply. Here the keypad interfaced to the microcontroller for storing information. The real-time clock (RTC) is used for maintaining accurate time, and a buzzer for indication, which is connected to the microcontroller. The 16*2 LCD display is interfaced to the microcontroller for displaying the information.

The system allows a user to enter the prescribed timings (the timings at which the patient has to take the medicines) through the keypad. This data will be stored in the microcontroller. The microcontroller continuously reads the time from the RTC. Whenever the time matches with the stored time, the system gives an alert through a buzzing sound and also displays the medicine name.

This project in future can be enhanced by integrating it with GSM technology with which a patient receives a reminder about the medicine he has to take via SMS on his/her cell phone.
