Brilliant wristband.


Designed by Brunel University student Claire Dunne, the Brilliant Intelligent Wristband is designed to make sure that patients are given the right medicine, rather than the wrong stuff, by matching a memory chip on the drug container to it’s internal memory records of the patient. The info is then displayed on the wristband screen. This is definitely a cool thing, peeps, although it doesn’t, or course, stop someone putting the wrong medicine into the container to begin with. [Thanks Victoria]

 The innovative wristband contains a sensor to scan medicines and a chip. The chip is programmed on the patient’s arrival at the hospital, with the patients’ details and drug requirements. The patients’ details are displayed on two small screens built into the wristband, which update when the drug is touched against the sensor. The bracelet works in conjunction with electronic chips attached to the medicines packaging (called an iButton). When the drugs packaging is touched against the sensor on the wristband, Brilliant can recognise whether it is the correct drug or not.
