Well done on the rebuttal dswiss! Looks like the BYU wit strikes back again! GO
@The RockI worked on the device mentioned in this article. We've done
destructive testing and it holds up to a lot of stuff: (600lb static load, 8lb
sledge, run over by a truck, compression under the "jaws of life." If
someone ends up destroying the device, there wouldn't be much left to
abuse. Also, you have to consider that when a person goes to refill their
prescription, their device would have to come back with them untampered and
unscarred. Any evidence of attempted tampering would result of an untrustworthy
status.So I agree with you, people can be creative, but there's
a lot that could be to done to curb the abuse. This product would be a great
beginning.@Obama10An access code is a very common security
measure. But if you're worried about remembering your code, I hope you can
imagine a future version of this product that would have a finger print scanner.
There are plenty of ways to get around a faulty memory.
Nice idea, but you expect an elderly patient who can't even remember to
take their pills to remember an access code? I can't even remember all of
my pins and passwords. Then there is the cost involved which would be passed on
to Medicare and Medicaid and ultimately the taxpayers. Lets find a way to
reduce the number of pills we are taking as a nation instead.
Great Idea.It may be tamper resistant but I bet I could get it open.
I have hack saws, and engine lathe, hammers and chisels and lots of other
tools.Still, it is a great idea but nothing can be made to be idiot
proof because idiots are so creative.
