Kit Helps Developing World Parents Divide Pills Into Kid-Friendly Doses [Video]

Kit Helps Developing World Parents Divide Pills Into Kid-Friendly Doses [Video]

New device could help save lives in countries where medicines are scarce.

Lara Piras

Project Dose has been created to address the issue in developing countries of parents improperly dividing adult pills for children’s consumption. Doctors often tell parents to split larger, expensive pills into smaller portions which can be difficult and so the Project Dose kit gives parents the tools to safely re-package the medicine.

The kit comes with a metal piece to crush the tablets, a plastic scraper to draw powder over pre-formed holes, and paper dividers to re-package correct amounts.

The project has received funding from grant program Ideas that Matter and prototypes are now being produced through a collaboration between Bao Design Lab and Technology for Tomorrow.
