Timed Capsules / Medicine Case

Timed Capsules
Timed Capsules

Time has great importance in the context or taking medication. Keeping track of time for medication is a common problem, and in some cases, taking medication at the wrong time can cause drug overdoses or an upset in the medication schedule. “Timed Capsules” answer the need to have a time indicator on tablet cases.
12-sided opening with a pointer on the lid represents a clock, allowing one to set the time for medication. The polygonal opening prevents the lid from turning when secured. The case is double-sided, with lids marked am and pm. Angled walls prevent tablets from popping out. Cases can be connected, for complex prescriptions.
