  • Patent number: 9662048
    Abstract: A blood glucose meter having a test strip port and an adjustable lancet device disposed at the same end of the device body is disclosed. The device body further includes an enclosure at the proximal end of the device body which houses a test strip storage vial and which facilitates one-handed opening and closing of the vial to simplify access to test strips contained therein. The enclosure is further provided with a window which allows the reading of the lot numbers on the label of the test strip vial therein without necessitating removal of the vial. A data connector is also provided on the device body for communication access, such as to upload data from other devices or to download data to other devices.

  • Publication number: 20160066678
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to support structures for bands for wearable devices. In an aspect, the support structure includes an inner member and an outer member. The inner member includes a curved portion and a flat portion. The outer member includes a curved portion and an interface member that attaches to the flat portion of the inner member. The inner member and the outer member form a cavity between them, and the cavity can be filled with a fill member. The inner and outer members can slide with respect to each other when flexed. An antenna can be wrapped around the inner member and the outer member.

  • Patent number: 8708433
    Abstract: A storage system includes a shell having a plurality of walls and a plurality of rails. The plurality of walls are coupled to one another to form a storage chamber therebetween and to define a plurality of intersection edges. Each of the plurality of intersection edges is formed at a corresponding boundary of two adjacent ones of the plurality of walls. The plurality of rails each extend outwardly from a corresponding one of the plurality of intersection edges with an angled orientation relative to each of the two adjacent ones of the plurality of walls. A cross-sectional thickness of each of the plurality of rails increases as each of the plurality of rails extends away from one of the plurality of intersection edges.

  • Patent number: 8418874
    Abstract: A storage assembly includes a bin having side panels, a bottom, a rim, a first reception slot and a second reception slot. The side panels and the bottom define a cavity therebetween. The rim extends from the side panels around a perimeter of an opening to the cavity and in a direction substantially parallel to the bottom. The first reception slot extends from the rim into a first one of the side panels, and the second reception slot extends from the rim into a second one of the side panels. The first one of the side panels is positioned opposite the second one of the side panels. Each of the first and second reception slots is configured to selectively receive a different portion of a divider, which divides the cavity into two or more compartments. Related storage and organization systems, accessories and methods are also disclosed and provide additional advantages.

  • Patent number: 8414092
    Abstract: A storage shell includes sidewalls and rails. The sidewalls each extend between two others of the sidewalls to collectively define a chamber therebetween. The sidewalls create a plurality of intersection lines each being defined along a boundary between two of the plurality of sidewalls. The plurality of are rails each coupled to and radially extends away from a different corresponding one of the plurality of intersection lines relative to a center of the storage shell. Each of the plurality of rails is formed with a Y-shaped cross-section. Related storage and organization systems, and methods are also disclosed and provide additional advantages.
