Programmable Medication Reminder System
The system helps people who forget to take their medications on time. Aged people usually tend to forget their medication timings. This project is designed to help such people take their medicines on time.
The system has two way alerts in order to ensure people take the right medicine at right time. The system alerts the user by sounding a buzzer about a medicine to be taken at that particular time and also displays the name of medicine to be taken.
The person may enter the medicine data and time of the medicine through a matrix keypad. So once the time is entered, it is displayed on the Lcd display and buzzing sound for alert. An RTC real time clock is interfaced with a microcontroller of the 8051 family in order to alert the patient on time.
The system can later be improved by interfacing system with a Gsm device which will send an sms alert to the person mobile phone at the time of taking medicine.
