The Dosett® medicine container is a Swedish invention created almost 50 years ago by Kjell Moe, then head of information at one of Sweden’s leading drug companies. Today Dosett® is the market leader in the field of medicine storage with a worldwide reputation as a safe and reliable product.
The Dosett® story begins when Kjell and his family take part in the Gotland Runt sailing race and has to leave his sick mother-in-law at home. To make it easy for his mother-in-law, who is taking a range of different medicines, he organizes her medicines into doses to be taken in the morning, afternoon and evening, placing them in the inner boxes of matchboxes, which he then puts into a flat chocolate box in the right order. All to make it easy for his mother-in-law to keep her medication in order. Unfortunately, his mother-in-law dropped the box on the floor on the second day and all the tablets scattered over the floor. When Kjell returned, his mother-in-law was not feeling at all well and he promised himself he would not help sell any more drugs until he had found a way to organize them safely. After a few very late nights in his cellar workshop, Dosett® was born.
The story shows that, as medicines have to be taken as prescribed to be effective, it is therefore vital to take the right dose of the right medicine at the right time. We generally have no problem remembering to take a painkiller when we have a headache or a sleeping tablet when we can’t sleep. Many medicines however are taken for preventive purposes, which means there are no acute symptoms to remind us.
Dosett® makes life that bit easier: One week’s dosage of medicines and/or vitamins using Dosett® makes it easier for you to keep a check on your medication.
