Sean McFleat (21), a product design student from Gray's School of art at The
Robert Gordon University, has exhibited his innovative system to help people
take their medication. He exhibited the product at this year's Gray's Degree
Show, sponsored by BP, which came to a close last week.
40% - 80% of patients do not take medicines as prescribed by their doctor which
has a cost of £40m, and causes over 100,000 deaths per year.
Sean, from Lochcarron, has developed a product called 2Rememdium which will help
people to remember to take their medication. It is simple and easy to use and
alerts the user when to take what medication, and at what dosage. It is pre-
programmed to minimise human error.
2Rememdium will be of particular benefit to the elderly or those who have to
take multiple medicines at specific times.
Tim Smith, BP's Director of External Affairs said, "In the four years that BP
has been involved with Gray's Degree Show we have been impressed by the standard
of the students' work. This year has been no exception and the originality and
creativity exhibited has been impressive."
