  • Patent number: 10478568
    Abstract: A needle safety device has an outer tube within which a syringe barrel is slideably receivable. A collar in the outer tube is moveable relative thereto and rotatably attachable to the distal end of the barrel. A force member biases the outer tube in a distal direction. A track is formed in the inner surface of the outer tube. A pin extending radially outwardly from the collar slidingly engages the track. In a staging position, the barrel is inspectable. In a pre-injection position, the cannula extends a first length beyond the outer tube. In a full-insertion position, the cannula extends a second length greater than the first length beyond the outer tube. In a locked position, the cannula is entirely within the outer tube.

  • Publication number: 20190341136
    Abstract: A method of detecting and/or tracking use of a drug delivery device is disclosed. The drug delivery device includes a machine readable code and a visual indicator, and has pre-use and used states, such that use of the drug delivery device triggers a transition from the pre-use to the used state. The visual indicator has a first state when the drug delivery device is in the pre-use state and a different second state when the drug delivery device is in the used state. The method includes enabling a user device having an image sensor to capture an image of the drug delivery device, determining, by the user device processor from the captured image, whether the visual indicator of the drug delivery device is in the second state, and obtaining, by the processor, information from the machine readable code when the visual indicator is determined to be in the second state.

  • Publication number: 20190163167
    Abstract: Some embodiments facilitate creation of an industrial asset item via an additive manufacturing process wherein motion is provided between a build plate and a print arm. A correction engine may receive, from an industrial asset item definition data store containing at least one electronic record defining the industrial asset item, the data defining the industrial asset item. A correction engine computer processor may then correct the motion provided between the build plate and the print arm such that the motion deviates from a path indicated by the data defining the industrial asset item. The three-dimension printer may be a rotary printer such that the build plate rotates about a vertical axis and moves along the vertical axis during printing. In these cases, a pre-compensation algorithm may be applied to correct the motion provided between the build plate and the print arm before transmitting data to the three-dimensional additive manufacturing printer.
