Title (EN) TABLET DISPENSER WITH LOCKING MEANS
(FR) DISTRIBUTEUR DE COMPRIMES DOTE D'UN MOYEN DE VERROUILLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to dispensing containers for dispensing tablets. The problem with such containers is the tendency to inadvertently dispense tablets and the accessibility of the tablets by children. The dispensing container (20) comprises a housing (24), a reciprocating element (26) and a locking mechanism (22) movable between locked and unlocked positions to lock or unlock the reciprocating element (26). The locking mechanism (22) remains in either the locked or unlocked position until manually moved to the other position. The locking mechanism incorporates visual, tactile and audible signals indicating when the locking mechanism (22) is in the unlocked position.
(FR) Conteneurs de distribution utilisés dans la distribution de comprimés. Le problème associé auxdits conteneurs est la tendence à distribuer par inadvertance des comprimés et l'accessibilité des comprimés aux enfants. Le conteneur de distribution (20) comprend un logement (24), un élément de va-et-vient (26) ainsi qu'un mécanisme de verrouillage (22) mobile entre des positions verrouillée et non verrouillée afin de bloquer ou de débloquer l'élément de va-et-vient (26). Ledit mécanisme de verrouillage (22) reste soit dans la position bloquée soit dans la position débloquée jusqu'à ce qu'il soit déplacé manuellement dans l'autre position. Ledit mécanisme de verrouillage est doté de signaux visuels, tactiles et audibles indiquant lorsque ledit mécanisme de verrouillage (22) se trouve en position débloquée.
