DIY Pill Dispensing is a product to enable an individual with limited or varying hand dexterity to more easily take daily medication. The device consists of 1 ounce Duralex stackable glass bowls with nonskid carpet padding affixed to the outer surfaces for easier grip.

Technical Specifications: 


  • Glass bowls
  • Nonskid carpet pad
  • Scissors
  • Double stick tape (Two-sided tape)


  1. Clean all surfaces of each bowl.
  2. A user chooses what part of the bowl they wish to have the gripping material be attached to. Adhere double stick tape to each of these areas.
  3. Using scissors cut the nonskid carpet pad so that it is the same width of your double stick tape.
  4. Attach the nonskid carpet pad to each piece of the double stick tape. It does stretch a little which helps with forming it to fit the bottom of the bowl, or wherever the user has chosen to put it

Note: Hand wash these bowls so that the nonskid carpet pad does not slip or become detached. Dishwashers and very hot water could melt the glue from the tape.

TOOLS: Craft Scissors.

SKILLS: Basic Cutting and Taping
