“The Cube” - Our current design model 

Our Pill Crusher will feature the possibility of two different attachments to drive the crushing mechanism : a hand crank or electrical motor.  The pills will be held in a small plastic bag, and placed into a slot which is accessible after opening the top cover.

Solid works rendering of the working model.

Objective: To design an improved Pill Crusher for use in nursing homes and/or hospitals.
