Remember to Take your Medicine

It can be difficult at the best of times to remember to take medicines regularly, especially for elderly people who are often taking several different pills a day. Luckily help is at hand in the form of the remind cap, a new invention from a Hong-Kong based company. The cap screws onto the bottle of pills and you then programme it to beep and flash at the times that you need to take a tablet, which can be up to 4 times a day for anything up to 36 days. The invention is due to be launched in the US soon. Success rather hinges on remembering to take the bottle everywhere with you in the first place though doesn't it ?
