Abstract

My project Is to engineer and create a Pill bottle that is locked by the biometrics of the caretaker's fingerprint so that the Patient can’t misuse the opioids or prescription in the bottle. This invention is important for the confirmation, and support of the idea that the patient doesn’t have the option or ability to misuse or abuse their medications. This would benefit the family members of the patient, the doctors of the patient, the caretakers and more, through the gratification of knowing that the individual is in safe hands. My product is similar to The Pill Popper, an automated pill dispenser with biometric access control. It verifies a patient’s fingerprint and dispenses medication based on a prescribed schedule, set by an authorized pharmacist or physician. This is quite similar to my product idea, although they are both different through the idea that mine would be for the Caretakers print, and not on a schedule, so that the patient couldn’t trick the dispenser into giving more than prescribed, or at wrong times, etc. I plan to do this project through experimental trials of the engineering mechanics behind it. And use Trial and Error for the lock, the bottle opening, etc. I expect to create a durable bottle large enough to contain the medication, with a secure lid and lock that is controlled by the Caretakers fingerprint. I plan to analyze my project through how tough and durable it is, and whether or not the lock is truly secure. I will know when I'm successful when my bottle can be roughhoused, dropped, thrown, etc. and stay unbroken, and still locked, while the lid still works for it’s same purpose.
