We recently had the chance to review the MedCenter System:
Prescription medicines are an important component of health management, however a growing volume of research indicates a disturbing trend in consumer noncompliance. Millions of Americans do not take their medicines correctly. People simply forget to take them, are confused about the proper dosage and timing, or lack the personal organization to carry out the daily task.
After noticing the problem of consumer noncompliance, Martin Cooper began a project based on a simple idea; create a talking system of remembering your daily medications using the date of the month - The MedCenter system. This system emphasizes the "Date" rather than the "Day of the Week." The "Date" is located on each Pill Box and Pill Cavity, the visual display of the Clock as well as audibly during the alert messages. This repetition of the "Date" helps ensure proper medication compliance, even when the user is unsure whether it is Monday or Tuesday.
Doctors and Pharmacists agree that taking medications on a set schedule is crucial for managing your health. With the MedCenter System, taking your medications on schedule, becomes a part of your daily routine.
The MedCenter System has a suggested retail price of $69.95 with the talking LCD clock and $34.95 without it. Other products include: the Monthly Mini Monthly Organizer ($24.95), Traveler Weekly Organizer ($19.95), Daily Pill Organizer ($18.95), Daily Pill Organizer with Alarm ($28.95), and 5-Alarm Sport Watch ($24.95).

What we thought:
This would be a great gift for an older family member. It's easy to set up and the design is perfect for easy, independent use. The talking LCD clock is super helpful for reminding users to take their medicines as often as necessary, whether once a day or several times a day. The MedCenter is easy to read and easy to understand. If you have someone on your list that requires a well-organized reminder system for taking their medications, be sure to check all that MedCenter has to offer!
