Scottsdale-based Medical Supplies Retailer to Be Sole North American Distributor of Innovative Medication Management Device
SCOTTSDALE, AZ – June 24, 2009 – ActiveForever, a Scottsdale-based retailer of medical supplies, physical therapy products, and fitness equipment, has just won an exclusive distribution agreement to warehouse and distribute the Med-E-Lert Automatic Pill Dispenser with Alarm throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada. This new product will be available on www.ActiveForever.com, as well as in its retail stores. The product line will also be available to drugstore chains, assisted living facilities and hospitals.
Automatic pill dispensers with alarms are known to be quite difficult to travel with, and have been fairly expensive until the development of the Med-E-Lert. This product shares the features of many of the traditional automatic pill dispensers used to optimize the management of nutritional supplements or medication yet this new model is portable, very easy to use, and is retailing at around half the price of some of its competitors.
“We are thrilled and honored to be chosen to represent this product line,” says ActiveForever CEO Erika Feinberg. “The Med-E-Lert’s functionality, quality and the manufacturer’s passion all represent everything ActiveForever stands for. We’re here to launch product innovations that make all the difference in a person’s life, and this Med-E-Lert will certainly open up worlds of opportunity for anyone who incorporates it into their patient care, or their family care plan.”
Automatic pill dispensers like the Med-E-Lert are ideal for patients who have Alzheimer’s, dementia, are mentally or visually impaired or for those who take several medications or nutritional supplements and vitamins throughout day and need an efficient reminder of which pills to take when. These products are also widely popular with in home caregivers and in assisted living facilities and hospitals so that caregivers can monitor patients’ medication in a manner that is simple and not time consuming. There are 28 spaces for medication in the Med-E-Lert, so a patient or caregiver can plan ahead for taking their medication up to four times a day for one week.
Other automatic pill dispensers can cost between $200.00-$700.00, and, while very helpful and convenient for many people, are not always affordable. The Med-E-Lert is easy to use and easy to program up to four times per day for up to seven days, and having a lock and key helps prevent over-medication or theft. It is made of high quality materials and is lightweight and battery operated so it is ideal for travel or for patients who need to be transported often. The clear top enables the user to see and monitor the status of the medication or supplements without unlocking the device. There are three different alarm tones are offered, including a blinking light, to alert the patient when medication needs to be taken. The alarm will not turn off until the pill dispenser is tilted on its side to dispense the pills.

The Med-E-Lert, like every other new product that comes through the doors of ActiveForever has been through the testing and review process of ActiveForever’s Product Management Team.
