Spherical Medication Dispensers

The Conceptual 'Ring Pillcase' Prevents Pills from Being Dropped

— May 25, 2021 — Lifestyle
The humble pill box has been given a design and user-conscious overhaul with the conceptual 'Ring Pillcase' that aims to deliver an enhanced experience for those who need to take daily medications. The spherical pill box works by being placed in the palm before being turned 60-degrees to reveal a small opening that's just big enough for the medication to come through. The pill can then be placed into the palm to prevent it from being accidentally dropped on the floor, which will thus increase overall hygiene.

The conceptual 'Ring Pillcase' is the design work of Nendo which explained the medication container further saying, "The user first places the case upon their palm and then turns the upper component 60 degrees counter-clockwise to reveal a slot. The slot was designed to face the user so the latter might easily see pills before dispensing. Then, gently tilted toward the user, the pill case releases one to two pills onto the user’s palm, from which the pills may be taken after the case is lifted."
Trend Themes
1. User-centric Pill Boxes - Designing medication containers with user-experience at the forefront can provide an opportunity for companies to stand out in the pharmaceutical industry.
2. Novel Medication Dispensers - Developing unique and innovative medicine dispensers can cater to customers' hygiene concerns and offer a solution to prevent the spread of illnesses.
3. Efficient Pill Management Products - Creating medication containers that facilitate the management of daily medication regimes can serve as an opportunity for companies to target the elderly or individuals with complex medication routines.
Industry Implications
1. Pharmaceuticals - Companies in the pharmaceutical industry can leverage user-centric, innovative designs for medication containers to improve the medical experience for their customers.
2. Consumer Electronics - Manufacturers of consumer electronics can explore partnerships with pharmaceutical companies to develop technological solutions for efficient medication management and administration.
3. Senior Care Services - Companies in senior care services can adopt novel, hygiene-conscious medication dispensers to offer improved support for elderly individuals with medication-management needs.
