Hi, my name is Nick Arnold, I'm in my 4th year studying product design and manufacture at The University of Nottingham.
I am currently working on a project named mobile medicine with the incentive to improve portable medical devices such as pill dispensers to enhance the lives of patients. I am currently in my research stage of the project. The idea is to remove the negative stigma around some of these home medical devices and to improve the patient's compliance to take their medication.
 
If anybody could take the time to complete a 10 minute questionnaire i have created it would be much appreciated. (click link below)

I'd be happy to buy another pill dispenser if it was made a little better, not flimsy, not too hard to open though. All of the 4 compartment/day ones are large and bulky. I don't that THAT many pills! The small ones are all too cheaply made.

I like the compactness of the square design instead of a long box for each day. They fit better in my purse. The only problem with the square design, as far as filling goes, is that the day boxes fall out of the cheap holder unless I put a rubber band around the holder.

4 compartments a day is a great help as a reminder to take meds - at a glance!
