Anatomy of the Automatic Powder Crush Pill Medication Crusher
Powdercrush Automatic Medication Crusher is an electric pill grinder that reduces even large, hard tablets into fine powder for easier patient administration. The powdered medication mixes with food or drink for smoother consumption. The Powdercrush Pill Crusher provides fast operation and saves time. Crushing takes less than 5-seconds. This device is useful for hospitals, nursing homes, rehab centers, correctional facilities, and home care, where patients require powdered medications. The device is for those who are tired of grinding pills manually and for those who want an easier and faster way to grind tablets.
Powdercrush Automated Pill Crusher operates from two rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. A built-in battery charger comes with your purchase. It takes around 3 hours to recharge the batteries. A battery indicator flashes red on the top of this tablet grinder when the batteries reach less than 10% charge, to let you know when recharging is necessary. It takes around 4 hours for a full recharge. The charging system is ‘smart’ sensing when charging is necessary and when the battery achieves 'charged' status so that batteries are never over-charged.
The Powder-Crush medication crusher uses small pouches or bags to hold pills and tablets for crushing. These bags prevent the medication from soiling the Powercrush device during the crushing operation and offers an efficient method to transfer the powder to the patient’s drink, food, or for direct consumption. This procedure makes this device simple to use and easy to dispense powdered medications. These pill crushing pouches also prevent cross-contamination with other medications. The construction of these medication pouches is tough and durable. They are puncture-proof to ensure the contents remain inside the bag until the top is opened and poured out. The bags are transparent to allow observation of the contents to ensure a fine-powder consistency before emptying the bag.
Comparing the best selling pill crushers on the market, this electric pill crusher device requires the least effort to operate. This is important if you have a lot of pills to crush or if there is a loss of strength on the part of the user due to age or illness.
