The scenario today in taking care of elderlypeople and other groups of people who need continuous medical attention involves assisting them with the right medication at the right moment of time. To enable these set of people to take medication on their own without the assistance of another individual is the main aim of this proposed paper. The proposed system is said to have inculcated Assistive technology which provides means of assistance by use of rehabilitative devices to people with varies disabilities. Assistive technology(AT) aims at promoting independence of the people by actually enabling them to perform varies tasks with ease which they were unable to perform otherwise. Assistive technology provides means of enhancing the lifestyle of people by providing assistance. On a reality check today not everyone is able to access AT catering to reasons like high costs, less awareness and less availability of the varies assistive devices. But it has been estimated that by 2050, a major portion of the society will be running on AT devices. In this paper we have proposed an approach advancing towards using AT devices. There has been usage of open source technologies and gives a new organised manner of taking medication dosages."Flexible compartment smart pillbox" basically allows the organization of several medication schedules that health disorders presented in elderly people and other groups of people require. The proposed system includes a buzzer along with an automatic pill dispensing system, user-friendly display interface and a notification system that uses a WIFI module. ARM-7 is taken as the principal controller. The development of this device is mainly focused on supporting elderly people and other groups of people who may have the needfor an assisted care.
