Color-Coded Monthly Pillbox
The MedCenter System features a monthly stocking design, with 31 individual pill containers having four compartments available for morning, noon, evening, and nighttime dosages. The system itself is a visual cue. It is large enough to be noticed by the user, but not so large as to clutter a countertop or bureau. Each dated pillbox has red and green color coding—green indicates pills are to be taken, and once emptied, the pillbox is turned upside down with the red end showing. This allows users and caregivers to verify compliance at a glance.

SureHands® Active stand-assist lift is designed for users who can stand but have difficulty getting up and down from a seated position. Clothing can be easily removed as the sling supporting the back and upper body lifts the user into a semi-standing position. There is an adjustable knee pad with a leg support that keeps the body in balance during lifting and moving. The lift has a short, width-adjustable base making it easily maneuverable in small rooms.
