Pill Jar for PD

iF concept design award 2012

Many patients suffering from such illnesses as Parkinson’s disease (PD) have great trouble in controlling their shaking extremities, which can make actions that are normally easy very difficult. This includes getting the medication they need out of the bottle. Pill Jar helps the sufferers of PD (or the elderly) to get the pills out of the bottle easily, even when their hands are shaking. They get one pill out at a time, simply by pressing and releasing the top. In addition, the main part is reusable and, thanks to its silicone ring, it can be adapted to fit on differently sized pill jars. Using the Pill Jar requires no detailed instructions.
