[ And a control unit (not shown) for controlling the collecting unit 110.
Here, the medicament collecting unit 110 may refer to a medicament collecting space formed radially in the position varying unit 100 formed in a substantially circular shape. When the position changing unit 100 is moved, Can be implemented.
In other words, the position variable unit 100 can rotate around a virtual axis by external power while having a plurality of drug collecting units 110 formed radially, and the rotation of the position variable unit 100 The drug collecting unit 110 is also rotated by the user, so that the drugs T1 and T2 can be injected according to the prescription of the patient.
 However, the position changing unit 100 and the medicine collecting unit 110 are not limited to the positions changing by rotating around the imaginary axis, but may be modified by linear motion on the same plane or vertical motion on the same axis It should be noted that the location may change.
Meanwhile, the medicines T1 and T2 injected into the medicament collecting unit 110 can not be accommodated in the medicament T1 and the medicament cassette 510 that can be accommodated in the medicament cassette 510 (see FIG. 3) (T2) collected on a tray 520 (see FIG. 5) on which a medicine is previously dispensed whenever necessary. The medicine collecting part 100, which is disposed at a predetermined position by the rotation of the position changing part 100, (110), respectively.
For example, a medicament for a single dose according to a prescription of a patient may be used as the medicament (T2) collected in the tray 520 and the two tablets of the medicament (T1) that can be accommodated in the medicament cassette 510, In the case of one tablet, that is, two kinds and total cleansing, the introduction of the medicines T1 and T2 into the medicament collection unit 110 can be realized by the movement of the medicament collection unit 110 by rotation.
In other words, once the two tablets of the medicament T1 that can be accommodated in the medicament cassette 510 which is one type of medicament T1 are put into a specific medicament collecting unit 110 disposed at a predetermined position, 110 is rotated to move the position of the medicine cassette 510. When the medicine T2 is inserted into the medicine cassette 510 which is another kind of medicine T2 as soon as the medicine T2 is placed at a predetermined position, The injection of the drug for the dose is completed.
