- Trade name: ANABOX® smart - Smart medication dispenser for relief or compensation of injuries or disabilities.
The ANABOX® smart is an intelligent medication dispenser that supports people with cognitive or physical disabilities. It can securely store and sort tablets and liquid medications. It reminds users or their relatives of the correct intake through acoustic and visual signals. The reminders and confirmations are sent via an app that works with Narrowband-IoT (no Bluetooth/Wi-Fi required). Audible signals and Braille enable visually impaired people to use it as well. The ANABOX® smart improves user compliance by simplifying medication intake and avoiding potential mix-ups.
Users: People with disabilities and/or limited mobility as well as their relatives, caregivers, pharmacy and/or hospital staff.
Expected Clinical Benefit
This medication dispenser with real-time connection via app is a high-quality device for home use and/or professional use.
The medication dispenser reminds the patient through acoustic and visual signals to take the medication on time. The connected app sends a reminder or confirmation of medication intake to the nursing staff, family members, or the user themselves (via Narrowband IoT - no Bluetooth/Wi-Fi required).

Your personal data is stored and processed securely and in compliance with GDPR. The login and data transfer from our app to ANABOX® smart are encrypted.
You can completely remove the drawer to replace it with a new one filled with medication. Additional drawers can be purchased as accessories for the ANABOX® smart.
The sensors detect the removal of the cups through the transparent surface.
Caution: any obstacles between the sensors and the drawer can interfere with or block the detection! Damage, scratches, or contamination of the transparent surface can impair the proper functioning of the device. Therefore, the surface should be handled carefully and regularly checked for any abnormalities.
Ask your pharmacy: they may already offer the service of filling the drawer of the ANABOX® smart for you. You can then exchange this weekly at the pharmacy for your empty drawer.
At the time of intake, the ANABOX® smart signals an upcoming medication intake. The cup to be taken flashes green. Additionally, you can configure an acoustic notification in the app.
Retrieve the cup and open the lid to take the medication. Use the ergonomically shaped part of the cup rim provided for this purpose (slight tilt). The cup should then be placed back into the drawer.
After a time individually adjustable in the app, the ANABOX® smart emits a first acoustic reminder. After a while, an optional louder acoustic signal can be emitted. At the same time, the user can be notified via the app about the pending intake.
In case of a malfunction, the ANABOX® smart can be restarted. To do this, the reset button (accessible with a pointed object in the reset opening (12)) must be pressed and released for one second. The ANABOX® smart then signals the restart by blinking the status LED (6) and beeping. The device will be operational again after 2 minutes.
To prevent accidental triggering of the reset button,
it is not directly accessible. To operate the reset button, you need a pointed, thin object. For example, you can use a paper clip. The object must be inserted into the reset opening (12).
For cleaning the drawer (3) and the cup (1), remove these components. Open the lids of the cups. Rinse them with lukewarm water and a mild dishwashing detergent approved for cleaning dishes. Alternatively, you can clean the cups with the lid open (including the drawer) in the dishwasher at a regular temperature of maximum 50°C. Ensure that the cups have been adequately dried before restocking. The use of common disinfectants, such as Sterillium Virugard or Isopropanol 70%, is also possible.
After cleaning and disinfection, ensure that the cups are adequately dried and ventilated before restocking with medications. Furthermore, we recommend cleaning the ANABOX® smart before each restocking with medications. Regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your device.
Ensure that the electronic control unit is always free from dust and other contaminants.
The electronic control unit should only be wiped with a damp cloth, as otherwise the function of the ANABOX® smart cannot be guaranteed!
