For the elderly, who are often troubled by forgetting or reusing medication, the medication itself can be tiring. This "toaster" medicine box can bring some familiar relief while reminding people to take their medicine on time. It also visually shows whether the drug has been taken.Three slices of "bread" contain a week's worth of medication, which pops up at regular times each day, combined with flashing lights and vibrations to remind users.The product modeling considers the emotional needs of users and reduces the depression caused by long-term medication.
