What is Med-O-Wheel Secure™?
Med-O-Wheel Secure is suitable for use by health care professionals, for example for drug rehabilitation, as it releases only one dose at a time—and at the right time. Once the medication has been administered, Med-O-Wheel Secure locks shut and will not release the next dose until it's time.
Features and advantages
For example, a patient in opioid replacement treatment has been prescribed Suboxone® to be taken each morning at 9am.
Operating principle of Med-O-Wheel Secure™
Medication doses used in drug therapy and/or mental health care can be loaded into the Med-O-Wheel when the administration of the medication must be regular and secure. The patient receives the medication only at a specific time of the day. Otherwise the device is locked shut and the medication is safe inside the unit. It is possible to set Med-O-Wheel to provide 1–4 dosage opportunities daily.
When the user presses the transparent part of the device cover, Med-O-Wheel moves the correct dose for release and then locks shut until the next specified dosage time.
