  • Publication number: 20170357766
    Abstract: A medical system is disclosed, which can be useable in particular for monitoring and/or controlling at least one bodily function of a user. The medical system comprises a control device and at least one medical user element embodied separately from the control device. The medical user element and the control device are designed to exchange data wirelessly. The medical system is designed to enable an automatic assignment step, wherein an exchange of personal data between the medical user element and the control device is enabled by the automatic assignment step. The medical system is furthermore designed to automatically initiate the automatic assignment step by means of an assignment coupling between the medical user element and the control device. The medical system is furthermore designed to enable a separation of the assignment coupling for medical operation of the medical system after the assignment step.

  • Publication number: 20170251922
    Abstract: The analyte concentration, such as glucose, in a human or animal body is measured with an implantable sensor that generates measurement signals. The measurement signals are compressed through statistical techniques to produced compressed measurement data that can is easier to process and communicate. A base station carries the implantable sensor along with a signal processor, memory, and a transmitter. A display device is also disclosed that can receive the compressed measurement data from the base station for further processing and display.

  • Patent number: 9662070
    Abstract: An insertion device is proposed for at least partly inserting a subcutaneous device, more particularly a subcutaneous sensor for detecting at least one analyte, into body tissue. The insertion device has at least one insertion aid and at least one subcutaneous device. The insertion aid has at least one substantially rigidly designed base body, more particularly an insertion needle, for insertion into the body tissue. The insertion device is designed to generate an adjustable holding force between the base body and the subcutaneous device. The insertion device is designed to set the holding force during the insertion such that the subcutaneous device is held against the base body. The insertion device is furthermore designed to set the holding force after the insertion such that the subcutaneous device is detachable from the base body.
