Great Idea.It may be tamper resistant but I bet I could get it open.
I have hack saws, and engine lathe, hammers and chisels and lots of other
tools.Still, it is a great idea but nothing can be made to be idiot
proof because idiots are so creative.
Nice idea, but you expect an elderly patient who can't even remember to
take their pills to remember an access code? I can't even remember all of
my pins and passwords. Then there is the cost involved which would be passed on
to Medicare and Medicaid and ultimately the taxpayers. Lets find a way to
reduce the number of pills we are taking as a nation instead.
@The RockI worked on the device mentioned in this article. We've done
destructive testing and it holds up to a lot of stuff: (600lb static load, 8lb
sledge, run over by a truck, compression under the "jaws of life." If
someone ends up destroying the device, there wouldn't be much left to
abuse. Also, you have to consider that when a person goes to refill their
prescription, their device would have to come back with them untampered and
unscarred. Any evidence of attempted tampering would result of an untrustworthy
status.So I agree with you, people can be creative, but there's
a lot that could be to done to curb the abuse. This product would be a great
beginning.@Obama10An access code is a very common security
measure. But if you're worried about remembering your code, I hope you can
imagine a future version of this product that would have a finger print scanner.
There are plenty of ways to get around a faulty memory.
Well done on the rebuttal dswiss! Looks like the BYU wit strikes back again! GO
