Sustainable maintenance practices will save you money
Plan for maintenance, not for obsolescence.
The need to split pills or tablets is long established. According to the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy, pill splitting is a viable means of reducing the cost of the medicine while maintaining the desired therapy when those medications with multiple dosage strengths are priced essentially the same.
Some patients prefer to break larger size pills like vitamins into small pieces to swallow easier, while some patients would like to order a larger size of the tablets or pills and then split them simply for economic considerations.
FineCut™ pill crusher/splitter provides a function of crushing tablets into a fine powder and splitting tablets into half and quarters. FineCut™ will take advantage of an unsatisfied market need for an effective, repairable, multi-functional medical device for home care patients.
Thoughtful materials, easy maintenance and longevity.
This pill crusher/splitter features a handle, base, and knob made from recycled polypropylene medicine bottles, that present an environmentally responsible alternative to disposable pill crushers/splitters currently on the market. The mechanism is comprised of zirconium oxide (ceramic) blades and a crushing head, eliminating potential rolling and dulling of the blade.
Superb consideration for user health and environment through thoughtful design process and a life cycle assessment. Universal design that is suitable for all age groups. The blade is hidden, when not in use, eliminating potential risk of child injury. The knob is specifically designed for elderly and people with arthritis and other rheumatic illnesses.
