dc.description.abstract This paper presents a new system for adverse drug reaction (ADR) monitoring for the elderly. By sorting the medication for the user and dispensing the dosages at the prescribed times ADRs can be prevented before they can occur. The device, named MediMaidTM, may also be used to log symptom information, which may be useful for diagnosis and emergency situations. The various components of the design function as a whole in order to safely deliver medication to the user in a timely manner. User analysis results indicate that MediMaidTM is a simple, effective and efficient way of delivering medication as well as preventing and monitoring ADRs. en
