Abstract
(DE)
Eine Vorrichtung zum zeitpunktgerechten Einnehmen von Medikamenten in portionierter Partikelform, z.B. Pillen, Dragees oder Kapseln, hat ein Gehäuse (1), in welches eine Blisterpackung (3) einschiebbar ist, die einen Speicher zur Aufnahme der einzunehmenden Medikamente bildet. Die Blisterpackung (3) liegt auf einer im Gehäuse angeordneten Platine (4) auf und trägt an der ihr zugewendeten Seite elektrisch leitende Leiterbahnen (8), welche die Höhlungen (5) der Blisterpackung (3), in welchen die Medikamente (6) angeordnet sind, kreuzen, derart, daß beim Durchdrücken eines Medikamentes (6) die betreffende Leiterbahn (8) unterbrochen wird. Diese Unterbrechung wird durch eine elektronische Schaltung (9) erfaßt, wodurch die Schaltung (9) zur Erregung eines Signalgebers (24) bei jeder Medikamentenausgabe auf einen neuen Zählzyklus rückgestellt wird. Die durchgedrückten Medikamente (6) fallen durch Durchbrechungen (10) der Platine (4) heraus, welche Durchbrechungen (10) positionsgetreu den Höhlungen (5) der Blisterpackungen (3) zugeordnet sind.
(EN)
The invention concerns a device designed to ensure that medication in the form of discrete solid doses, e.g. pills, tablets or capsules, is taken at the correct time, the device having a casing (1) into which a blister pack (3) which represents a store holding the pills to be taken is inserted. The blister pack (3) rests on a plate (4) disposed in the casing and has, on the side facing the plate, electrical conductor tracks (8) which cross over the cavities (5) in the blister pack (3) containing the pills (6) in such a way that, when a pill is pressed out of the pack, the conductor track (8) concerned is broken. This break is detected by an electronic circuit (9) which is reset, each time a pill is pressed out, to start a new counting cycle designed to trigger a signal generator (24). The pills (6) pressed out of the blister pack fall through apertures (10) in the plate (4) which are located accurately opposite the cavities (5) in the blister pack (3).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif permettant de distribuer des médicaments sous forme particulaire préportionnée, tels que des pilules, des comprimés ou des capsules, au moment où on doit les prendre. Ce dispositif comprend un boîtier (1) dans lequel peut être insérée une plaquette sous blister (3) constituant un réservoir contenant les médicaments à absorber. La plaquette sous blister (3) se trouve sur une platine (4) montée dans le boîtier et porte, sur le côté qui lui fait face, des tracés électro-conducteurs (8) qui croisent les cavités (5) de la plaquette sous blister (3), dans lesquelles sont situés les médicaments, de manière à ce lorsqu'un médicament (6) est sorti de l'emballage, par pression, le tracé conducteur (8) correspondant soit interrompu. Cette interruption est détectée par un circuit (9) électronique qui est ramené à un nouveau cycle de comptage, à chaque fois qu'un médicament est sorti de l'emballage, afin d'exciter un générateur de signaux (24). Les médicaments (6) exprimés par pression sur l'emballage sortent de la platine (4) par des passages (10) positionnés de manière à correspondre fidèlement aux cavités (5) des plaquettes sous blister (3).
