The MedCenter System Review

I recently got this MedCenter System to try out that helps you keep track of your medicines and it has an alarm clock that will let you know when it's time to take them! Now, if you take as many as I do or you can even use it for Vitamins or a combination of both, this will come in very handy to have around. I sometimes forget if I have taken something, especially if I had a bad night and didn't get any sleep, that is when I usually have trouble remembering.

Like last night for example, I tried to go to sleep several times and finally said to heck with it and got up! I haven't been to sleep yet and it's almost 8:30 am. Now, I will fall asleep some time today and if I didn't have the MedCenter System Pill Organizer, I could very easily lose track of what I took and didn't take.

Here's how it works:
* Load the entire month's meds into the (31) Daily Pill Boxes and place them into the Organizer with their Green ends up, showing they are full.
Set up to 4 Daily Alarms to alert you when your medication is due.
• At the beginning of the day, take the correct Pill Box out of the stand and place it into the "Today's Pills" tray on the front of the Organizer Stand.

• A repeating friendly reminder notifies you of the time, the date and which daily dose to take. "Good morning! Please take your morning pills for the 20th."

Press the red “Alarm Acknowledged" button to confirm compliance and the MedCenter Talking Alarm Clock tells you when the next daily dose is due.
• At the end of the day, return the Pill Box to the stand with the Red end up to show the day's pills have been taken.
• Press the green "Talk / Time" button at any time for an audible notification of the current time and date.
• Press the blue "Alarm Check" button at any time for an audible notification of the upcoming alarms.
• The clock also features an easy to operate, talking, Set procedure for all four alarms, the time and date.
• Large easy to read LCD with backlight makes the clock easy to read, even in the dark
I really like this idea of the alarm clock going off so you won't miss your pills. Without that, this would not have worked for me. I get so involved sometimes in whatever it is I am doing or I will fall asleep right in the middle of a book or typing on my laptop and miss it all. So, just the pill boxes with the day of the month on it wouldn't work for me, because unless there is someone or something telling me to take them, I am bad to forget unless it is sitting right here beside me.
That picture below is where you set the clock and the alarms.
Other awesome features of alarm clock:
**Tri-Date Verification: matching the visual dates on pill boxes & clock with audible alerts will ensure accuracy
**Can set up to 4 alarms daily
**Loud & Extra Loud sound settings ensure the alarm is heard
**Red & Green Color Coding shows when daily dose is complete
**31 Daily Pill Boxes that organizes your medications or vitamins by the month
**Easy Open Lid on pill boxes allows for easy access
As you can see by the picture above, the numbers are easy to see and read. I have a really bad camera that doesn't do well with glare so that is why some of the numbers seem hard to read. When your medications are done, the color will go green to let you know that all of your pills for that day were successfully taken.
You can also get Weekly Pill Organizers, Travel Pill Organizer and there is even a 2 Month Pill Organizer. They have replacement Pill Organizer's that you can get if you need to replace the ones that you have and they have a 5 Alarm Sports Watch!

About The MedCenter System:
In the wake of watching their father battle with an increasing level of dementia, brothers Martin and David Cooper sought to find a way to maintain their father’s independence. In 2005, Martin Cooper began a project based on a simple idea; create a talking system of remembering your daily medications using the date of the month. Over the next two years, working with his team of designers and engineers, the MedCenter System was born.

My grandparents could certainly use this, and my sister too. When you're on medication, it can rule your life and this seems like a way that could make it a bit more manageable.
