Piro bottle / Medicine assisted tool

Piro bottle
Piro bottle

Piro bottle is a two-sided bottle that helps children to take pills. According to the research paper, ways of taking pills can be divided in two. The side with straw is for the pills lighter than water. The straw makes the children bow their heads when drinking, so the pills can float up to near the throat. The side without straw is for the pills heavier than water. Children have to raise their heads when drinking, so the pills can sink to the throat. Piro bottle allows children to change the ways of taking pills easily according to the types of them. Taking pills is no longer a difficult task as long as using the right method.
