Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19706235A1] The invention relates to a portable small watch, in particular a wrist watch, which is combined with a dispenser for holding and dispensing medicinal pills. The dispenser consists of a magazine carrier, adapted to the watch case, into which a magazine can be inserted which holds the pills to be taken. The watch comprises a control unit which receives time information from the clockwork and controls the stepped advance of the magazine carrier and a signal transmitter. The magazine carrier comprises an ROM memory which contains the information pertinent to the intake of the pills and transmits said information to the control unit via an interface. Sensors in the magazine carrier acknowledge the removal of pills to the control unit, so that said unit signals not only the planned intake regimen but also monitors compliance with said regimen.
