Disposal-Touch / Drug Package


Every year, a lot of people are hurt because of the ingestion of expired drugs.
After a review of data, we found most people who are hurt from expired drugs are visually impaired.
So we though if there were a mechanism to prevent the opening of containers of expired drugs. As long as drugs can’t be taken, no one could open the pill container, no matter how much exertion was used. Finally, we decided to use a kind of innovative memory plastic, which changes consistently over time. When the time has expired, the plastic would become hard and difficult to open, so that we would not have to worry about the ingestion of expired drugs.
