Abstract

In recent years, many medical accidents have been caused by the confusing designs of pharmaceutical packages and displays. For osteoporosis treatment, a common disorder of elderly females, improving display visibility and operability is especially important. However, since the osteoporosis drugs to be taken once a week are sold in various package designs, differences of viewability, understandability, and operability must be clarified from the differences of package design. We performed experiments as follows.
