  • Publication number: 20200337607
    Abstract: Systems and methods for processing sensor data and calibration of the sensors are provided. In some embodiments, the method for calibrating at least one sensor data point from an analyte sensor comprises receiving a priori calibration distribution information; receiving one or more real-time inputs that may influence calibration of the analyte sensor; forming a posteriori calibration distribution information based on the one or more real-time inputs; and converting, in real-time, at least one sensor data point calibrated sensor data based on the a posteriori calibration distribution information.

  • Publication number: 20200316296
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed that provide smart alerts to users, e.g., alerts to users about diabetic states that are only provided when it makes sense to do so, e.g., when the system can predict or estimate that the user is not already cognitively aware of their current condition, e.g., particularly where the current condition is a diabetic state warranting attention. In this way, the alert or alarm is personalized and made particularly effective for that user. Such systems and methods still alert the user when action is necessary, e.g., a bolus or temporary basal rate change, or provide a response to a missed bolus or a need for correction, but do not alert when action is unnecessary, e.g., if the user is already estimated or predicted to be cognitively aware of the diabetic state warranting attention, or if corrective action was already taken.

  • Publication number: 20200170508
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided to calibrate an analyte concentration sensor within a biological system, generally using only a signal from the analyte concentration sensor. For example, at a steady state, the analyte concentration value within the biological system is known, and the same may provide a source for calibration. Similar techniques may be employed with slow-moving averages. Variations are disclosed.
