Title (EN) MEDICINE CAP TIMING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE SYNCHRONISATION DE DEBOUCHONNAGE DE CONTENANT DE MEDICAMENTS
Abstract:
(EN) A medicine cap with a timing mechanism that automatically resets upon the removal of the cap from a medicine bottle. A timing device is housed within a medicine camp, with a diaphragm housed below the timing device. The diaphragm has a rod extending upward from a central location, and fastening the cap onto a bottle or container causes the rod to be pushed up into contact with, and activate, the timing device. Upon removal of the cap from the bottle or container, the rod loses contact with the timing device, and the timer is reset. The cap may comprise multiple pieces, so the cap may be used in child-proof mode by the engagement and disengagement of splines on the cap housing and a cap insert. Means are supplied for enabling the constant engaging of the splines.
(FR) L'invention concerne un bouchon de contenant de médicaments présentant un mécanisme de synchronisation qui se réinitialise automatiquement lors du retrait du bouchon d'une bouteille de contenant de médicaments. Un dispositif de synchronisation est monté à l'intérieur d'un bouchon de contenant de médicaments, un diaphragme étant monté sous ce dispositif de synchronisation. Le diaphragme présente une tige s'étendant vers le haut, à partir d'un emplacement central, et fixant le bouchon sur la bouteille ou sur le contenant de médicaments, ce qui provoque une poussée vers le haut de la tige en contact avec le dispositif de synchronisation et ce qui active le dispositif de synchronisation. Lors du retrait du bouchon de la bouteille ou du contenant, la tige n'est plus en contact avec le dispositif de synchronisation, et la minuterie est remise à zéro. Le bouchon peut comprendre plusieurs parties, de sorte que le bouchon peut être utilisé avec une fermeture à l'épreuve des enfants constituée par l'emboîtement et par le déboîtement de clavettes à rainure situées sur le boîtier de bouchon et d'un élément d'insertion de bouchon. Dans l'invention, un moyen permet également un emboîtement constant de ces clavettes à rainure.
