Product Description
Talking Rx is a voice output medication label reader and reminder device designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. This system is a 60-second digital recording device that fits on the bottom of a 12-, 13-, or 16-dram prescription bottle. A doctor or pharmacist records prescription information and instructions into Talking Rx, and the user can then hear the recorded information and instructions by pushing a small red button. The device produces clear, audible voice playback at 80-85 decibels. Messages can be up to 60 seconds long, and each message can be played up to 150 times. To record a message, the doctor or pharmacist actuates a recessed record button inside the device using a stylus or paperclip. While holding the record button down, the physician or pharmacist records the message by speaking into Talking Rx. Talking Rx can be used over and over. The same Talking Rx can be used again for a different medication or prescription when the first one is finished. The device can also be used with insulin or eye drops. Talking Rx is water-resistant and ultrasonically welded for security. POWER: Uses three watch batteries.
