Hi my names Arhum, and I'm the creator of Medi-cane, anybody that has taken care of an aging loved one knows that one of the hardest things is reminding them to take daily medications. this is where Medi-cane comes in, what so special about Medi-cane Medi-cane is a cane with an alarm on it. the alarm uses the Arduino platform, has a buzzer, and also has an LCD screen. this is all built onto the cane, the cane displays the time and date live. and can also display a specific message the user wants when their alarm goes off. such as, take pill A, take pill B, take this pill in a certain dosage. Whatever it may be. the way that Medi-cane grabs the attention of the senior is by using the piezo alarm. but why a cane? over 50 percent of seniors use a cane as a walking aid, ultimately meaning they'll always have it on them, and also have their alarm on the at all times. This solves the problem of seniors forgetting to take their medication, which can lead to taking it late, not taking it constantly, or not even taking it at all. the price of one Medi-cane is $125 the type of customers that would be interested in this would be someone that's taking care of an aging loved one, senior homes, or possibly senior themselves, as a walking aid and an easy way to take their medications. in the end, seniors forgetting to take their medication is a big problem that we have to face, and Medi-cane is a simple solution.
