zak / Dispenser


zak is a an easy-to-use pill dispenser. The innovative release mechanism means a tremendous benefit to people with reduced hand flexibility. A special feature is the despenser's plug-on ball. It facilitates the easy handling by its large grasp radius. The dispenser keeps its functionality even when removing the ball. The interaction is either pneumaticly or directly transmitted to the folding mechanism which causes the release of a pill. The dispenser's round shape meets the standard norm and allows an easy implementation into existing filling stations. Through the exchangeable bottom part the dispenser can be adjusted to any pills' sizes.
