The creator of this Alzheimer’s watch worked to remedy the discrepancy between the importance of taking medicine and the common tendency of dementia sufferers to forget about it their drugs. Asal Hazrati has created a wrist-worn device designed for great reliability, accessibility and convenience that will keep track of its wearer's treatment intake.

The rectangular face of the gadget would display the person's vital signs and alert them when it's time to take a dose. A pill box would be integrated into the back of the hi-tech accessory, enabling one to easily pick up and pop down a capsule the moment he's notified.

The rise of health tracker wristbands has influenced the development of similar devices for specific medical conditions. There's great potential here to improve the independence of those with mental deterioration––an especially significant innovation for an increasing aging population.
