An electronic cap displays a timer that beeps when it is time for patients to take their medication. The Pill Timer operates with the company’s 13- and 16-dram vials and a variety of pharmaceutical containers. The patient sets the timer with a one-button setting for hourly regimens from one to 24 hours. When a dosage is due or when one is missed, the timer beeps. It will automatically reset each time the closure is placed back on the vial. Kerr Group Inc., Lancaster, PA.
Snap-type dispensing closures offer consumers easy access to the desired number of tablets or capsules and allow them to close the container with the pills still in hand.
