Accessibility to basic healthcare is an important one in terms of development towards building a healthy future. The MEDICAL ASSISTIVE ROBOT is a device used to provide correct medication at correct time with the right amount of dosage without the aid of nurse. The robot also act as path following robot so there is no need to reach the robot in order to take the pill instead of that robot will reach the patient, it also consist of an object detecting sensor(IR) to avoid the obstacle in the path. The device uses RFID card to link the patient id which hold all the data of the patients such as identity and their prescription etc.. A specially designed wheal like structure with N number of slots acts as pill storage space. The arduino microcontroller used to automate the whole process. Each slot of pill storage named to a particular tablet in terms of rotating angle of stepper motor. Suction pump used to pick the pill. The process starts when the user taps the RFID card. In this work the device is designed and manufactured in an efficient way. There are some other devices that perform similar function Ex: The Automatic pill dispenser, All time medication but this project deals with integration of the doctors prescription, which results in overcoming the manual error. The objective of this project is to reduce the avoidable medication errors in the absence of the doctor also help the older people who are poor in memory.
