Pill Cutters & Pill Crushers
Pill Cutters & Pill Crushers for Medications
Patients who are being cared for in hospital or in a nursing home usually have to take medication regularly in the form of pills. Due to swallowing difficulties, some patients find it difficult to take whole pills, but their active ingredient is an indispensable part of their therapy. Cutting or pulverising pills is a proven and safe method to make taking medication as comfortable as possible for patients. For this reason, practical pill splitters and crushers can be found in every healthcare facility.
A pill-cutter is a simple device to cut tablets, comprising some means of holding the tablet in place, a blade to cut, and often a compartment in which to store the unused part. By cutting a pill, you also halve the amount of active ingredient it contains. This can be particularly advantageous if the dose prescribed by the doctor is not commercially available. Pill cutters also offer a simple solution for patients with a swallowing disorder.
In our range you will find, for example, a Pill Cutter from Teqler. This pill cutter in a sturdy plastic design aids to cut pills precisely and quickly and ensures that nothing of the active ingredient is lost with a practical collecting compartment in the base. The blade fixed in the lid makes it possible to cut the pill with little effort.
Some patients find it difficult to swallow pills, regardless of their size. In this case, pill crushers are used. The crushers are used to grind solid pills into swallowable tablet powder. In powder form, the medicines can be mixed quickly and easily with food, for example, or administered via a feeding tube.
At Praxisdienst, in addition to a functional pill crusher with screw thread, you may also purchase the Tookan Pill Crusher for hospitals, doctors' surgeries or nursing homes. By packing the pills in medicine bags before crushing, the housing of the mortar remains free of powder residue. In this way, mixing of different medicines is avoided.
In our online shop, you will also find a wide range of matching accessories, e.g. pill boxes, to make it easier to manage your medication.
Since different medicines have to be taken at different times of the day, it is important to keep a clear overview. Pill boxes, or dispensers are containers used for the storage of scheduled doses of medications: You may purchase weekly or daily pill organizers. Some pill boxes are clearly marked for each week day with seven single day tablet compartments. Others, such as the Pill Dispenser from Dahlhausen, have 4 time of day compartments so that the patient can divide their tablets into individual times of morning-noon-evening-night to take throughout a single day.
We also stock a medicine tray from the well-known manufacturer. It offers space for 19 tablet dispensers and 19 medicine cups. In our online shop you may also purchase Severo medication cups and lids for safe transport and storage of medications.
In the overview of the Lab Equipment category, you will find many other devices for everyday laboratory use as well as various tests, carriers and consumables.
