  • Publication number: 20230310763
    Abstract: Various exemplary drug delivery devices with multiple drug vials, drug products utilizing the same, and methods of using drug delivery devices with multiple drug vials are provided. In general, a nasal drug delivery device configured to dispense a drug therefrom into a nose and includes two or more vials each containing the drug therein. The drug delivery device is configured to deliver the drug from each of the vials for a total of two or more sprays into the nose. The same drug delivery device may therefore deliver multiple drug sprays to a user. In some embodiments, instead of including two or more vials that collectively contain enough drug therein for more than two drug sprays, the drug delivery device can include a single vial that contains enough drug therein for more than two drug sprays.

  • Patent number: 10292606
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for determining performance capacity. One such system includes a wearable device having a biosensor that measures biometrics and a motion sensor that monitors activity. The system also includes a processor coupled to the biosensor and the motion sensor, and a non-transitory computer-readable medium operatively coupled to the processor and storing instructions that, when executed, cause the processor to execute specific functions. The instructions are executed to cause the processor to generate biometric data from the biometrics and activity data from the activity. Further, the instructions are executed to create a response profile based on one or more of a heart rate variability (HRV) score based on the biometric data, a fatigue score based on the activity data, a predicted HRV score based on the biometric and activity data, and a predicted fatigue score based on the biometric data and/or the activity data.

One such system includes a wearable device comprising a biosensor that monitors biometrics (e.g. heart rate); a motion sensor that monitors activity; a processor operatively coupled to the biosensor, the processor configured to process electronic signals periodically generated by the biosensor and the motion sensor; and a non-transitory computer-readable medium operatively coupled to the processor and storing instructions that, when executed, cause the processor to execute specific functions. In particular, the instructions are executed to cause the processor to generate biometric data from the biometrics (e.g. heart rate information in particular). Further, the instructions are executed to generate an exertion recommendation based on an exertion model created from and representing a relationship between prior exertion measures and prior response profile measures.

  • Patent number: 10078734
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for using earphones with biometric sensors to identify and present information regarding performance periods. Fatigue level associated with fatigue experienced in response to a stimulus and recovery from such fatigue may be determined based on heart rate variability (HRV) data and learned user characteristics. One or more cycles of fatigue and recovery can be identified as a fitness cycle(s), each fitness cycle encompassing a period of time beginning with the stimulus associated with the fitness-related activity and progressing through recovery from the fatigue experienced in response to the stimulus associated with the fitness-related activity. A performance period may be predicted based on a pre-determined fatigue/recovery level instance within a fitness cycle.

  • Publication number: 20170206337
    Abstract: A system generates an automated survey and causes a user interface of an electronic device to present survey to a patient, so that the system can use the survey responses to identify and provide wellness or disease management content items that are tailored to the patient's behavioral needs. The system automatically generates an electronic survey document with data entry fields that each correspond to a question for a category of behavioral influence. The document includes fillable fields as presented on a user interface. When the system receives data via the fillable fields as presented on the user interface of the electronic device, it will assign a value to each response, construct a patient model, and it will use the patient model to extract intervention content items and provide the patient with those items.
