We Claim:

1. A film dispensing device, said device comprising:

a housing defining a dispensing orifice;

a cartridge for storing at least one film, said cartridge comprising:

a chamber to hold said at least one film therewithin, said chamber defined by base, front wall, rear wall and a plurality of side walls of said cartridge, wherein said front wall defines an opening to allow ejection of a single film out of said at least one film, and wherein said base defines a slit along its longitudinal surface; and

a tab assembly slidably engaged with said chamber, said tab assembly comprising:

a carrier strip defining a film engagement arm extending at an angle relative to longitudinal axis of the carrier strip; and

a tab affixed to said carrier strip, said tab extending at an angle relative to the longitudinal axis of said carrier strip; and

a driving unit configured to engage with said tab assembly, wherein said driving unit, upon actuation, forces said tab to move along the slit to eject said single film from the opening.

2. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 1, wherein said driving unit comprises a tab engagement arm, a track, and a motor.

3. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 1, wherein said device further comprises a film carrier track configured to convey said ejected film from said opening to the dispensing orifice for dispensation thereof to a user.

4. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 1, wherein said opening is matingly engaged with said dispensing orifice to allow dispensation of said ejected single film from the dispensing orifice.

5. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 1, wherein said cartridge further comprises a biasing member defined along a wall opposite to said base to urge said at least one film towards said carrier strip.

6. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 1, wherein length of said carrier strip is short as compared to length of said at least one film.

7. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 1, wherein said carrier strip is at an angle relative to longitudinal axis of said base.

8. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 1, wherein said carrier strip is tapered towards said opening.

9. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 1, wherein said device further comprises a sensor configured to detect any or a combination of number of the ejected film and quality of the ejected film.

10. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 1, wherein said base further comprises a lug to blockingly engage with said carrier strip.

11. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 10, wherein said device further comprises a lug engagement arm, that upon actuation of the device movingly disengage said lug from said carrier strip.

12. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 1, wherein said at least one film comprises a multi-layered film.

13. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 10, wherein said multi-layered film comprises any or a combination of a backing layer, a protective layer, an adhesive layer and a carrier layer.

14. The film dispensing device as claimed in claim 11, wherein said carrier layer comprises a film impregnated with any or a combination of at least one pharmaceutical agent, at least one herbal ingredient, at least one nutraceutical and at least one cosmetic agent.

15. A cartridge for storing at least one film and dispensing a single film at a time, said cartridge comprising:

a chamber to hold said at least one film therewithin, wherein said chamber is defined by a base, front wall, rear wall and a plurality of side walls of said cartridge, and wherein said front wall defines an opening to allow ejection of said single film, further wherein said base defines a slit along its longitudinal surface; and

a tab assembly slidably engaged with said chamber, wherein said tab assembly comprises:

a carrier strip defining a first surface to be mateably engaged with said at least one film and a second surface opposite to said first surface, wherein said carrier strip defines a film engagement arm extending at an angle relative to longitudinal axis of the carrier strip; and

a tab affixed to said carrier strip at its second surface, said tab extending at an angle relative to the longitudinal axis of said carrier strip.

16. The cartridge as claimed in claim 12, wherein said cartridge further comprises a biasing member defined along a wall opposite to said base to urge said at least one film towards said carrier strip.

17. The cartridge as claimed in claim 12, wherein length of said carrier strip is short as compared to length of said at least one film.

18. The cartridge as claimed in claim 12, wherein said tab extends from the slit upon engagement of said tab assembly with said chamber.

19. The cartridge as claimed in claim 12, wherein said carrier strip is at an angle relative to longitudinal axis of said base.

20. The cartridge as claimed in claim 12, wherein said carrier strip is tapered towards said opening.
