  • Patent number: 10184615
    Abstract: A medical device includes an interface unit body, which is configured to hold a portion of a flexible infusion tube. A hinge insert is fixed to the interface unit body and is configured to engage a hinge receptacle, which defines a hinge axis, on an infusion pump. A catch insert is fixed to the interface unit body and is configured to lock onto a catch receptacle on the infusion pump upon rotation of the mechanical interface unit about the hinge axis while the hinge insert engages the hinge receptacle, so as to bring the tube into engagement with a peristaltic mechanism of the infusion pump in order to enable the peristaltic mechanism to propel a fluid through the tube.

  • Patent number: 10113543
    Abstract: The present invention includes a finger-type peristaltic pump with a ribbed anvil. According to some embodiments, a finger type peristaltic pump may comprise a plurality of pressing fingers, an infusion tube and a passive interfacing mechanism. The passive interfacing mechanism may comprise a channel, groove or other suitable mount for placing and mounting an infusion tube such that the pressing fingers are positioned on one side of the tube and the ribbed anvil on the opposite side. The pressing fingers may be positioned to apply an approximately perpendicular force on the tube, pressing it against the ribbed anvil, thus causing a pumping action.

  • Patent number: 9674811
    Abstract: Disclosed is a medical device including a therapeutic component to provide one or more therapeutic functionalities during whilst in therapeutic mode, and may further enter into a device sleep mode (DSM), a transceiver configured to provide the medical device with wireless connectivity and which may further transition into a transceiver sleep mode (TSM) substantially concurrent with transition into DSM, the transceiver may intermittently transition between TSM and a scan mode, during which scan mode the transceiver may listen for a wireless packet addressed to the transceiver, and a localization module which may emit a discovery signal upon receipt of the wireless packet addressed to the transceiver.

  • Patent number: 9581152
    Abstract: A peristaltic pump which includes: (a) a plurality of effecters, actuated in a periodic manner upon by obstructive forces of a flexible infusion tube so that flow of infusion fluid is provided along the infusion tube, the magnitude of the obstructive forces are dependent upon the displacement of the moving effecters, and (b) a plurality of balancing magnets providing balancing forces upon one or all of the moving effecters, the balancing forces at each point along the path of motion of the moving effecters being of approximately equal magnitude to that of the obstructive forces at the point, such that the parasitic output due to work performed against the obstructive forces is approximately zero and yield is maximized.

  • Patent number: 9457158
    Abstract: An intravenous pump system includes an intravenous pump having an air bubble detector, a separate air trap module and a patient line. The air trap module is connectable to a set interface upon which the pump can operate. The air trap module includes an air chamber capable of receiving fluids and air, a plurality of valves controlling the flow of the fluids and air, and an air vent. The patient line is connectable to the air trap module and to a patient. The air trap module includes an actuator to control the state of the valves to enable, at least during a venting mode, the pump to push air out of the air chamber via the vent without disconnecting the patient from the patient line.

  • Patent number: 9404490
    Abstract: The invention provides a finger-type peristaltic pump (2) having a body (4) and a housing (6). The body contains two or more finger-type valves (16) and a processor (22) configured to operate the valves according to a predetermined temporo-spatial pattern. The housing has a passageway (18) configured to receive a conduit. The housing has a first position in which a conduit in the passageway is positioned adjacent to the valve fingers, and a second position in which a conduit in the passageway is not adjacent to the valve fingers. The invention also provides a housing for use in the pump of the invention.

  • Patent number: 9333290
    Abstract: The present invention discloses an anti-free flow mechanism for a finger-type peristaltic infusion pump (DDS) and methods for avoiding anti-free-flow. The mechanism comprises: a passive mechanical interface (MS) which integrally accommodates a portion of the flexible infusion tube, and an anti-free flow valve (AFFV) which is a spring-activated latch, which is incorporated within said MS. The maneuverable latch is secured in the MS either in CLOSED or OPEN configurations: in its CLOSED configuration no flow is provided, and in its OPEN configuration, a free flow is facilitated. Said anti-free flow mechanism is configured in a manner such that when the MS is not properly mounted in the DDS, said AFFV is automatically actuated via one or more integrated springs, to its CLOSED configuration. When the MS is properly mounted in the DDS, said latch is adapted to be automatically switched to the OPEN configuration.
