  • Publication number: 20210295976
    Abstract: A medicine administration and tracking system includes a delivery device configured to deliver a plurality of doses of medicine over a plurality of days and a computing device configured to receive dose information for each dose. The computing device includes a software application operable to cause the computing device to retrieve the dose information for all doses within a pre-determined period of days, categorize each dose within the pre-determined period of days into one of a plurality of time blocks throughout a 24-hour timeframe, determine a time of interest based on a time block of the plurality of time blocks having the least amount of doses categorized therein, and select a physiological parameter reading from a plurality of physiological parameter readings as a physiological parameter reading of interest based on a proximity of a time of the physiological parameter reading to the determined time of interest.

  • Publication number: 20200321094
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are disclosed for administering a medicament to a patient. In one aspect, a system includes an injection pen device in wireless communication with a mobile communication device. The injection pen device includes a housing including a chamber to encase a cartridge containing medicine, a dose setting and dispensing mechanism to set the mechanism to dispense a particular dose of the medicine from the loaded cartridge, a sensor unit to detect a dispensed dose based on positions and/or movements of the dose setting and dispensing mechanism, and an electronics unit in communication with the sensor unit to process the detected dispensed dose and time data associated with a dispensing event and to wirelessly transmit the dose data to a user's device. The mobile communication device provides a software application to provide the user with health information using the processed dose data.

  • Patent number: 10751538
    Abstract: A method for controlling a position of a patient's tongue includes attaching at least one electrode to the patient's hypoglossal nerve, applying an electric signal through the electrode to the hypoglossal nerve to stimulate at least one muscle of the tongue at least until the number of obstructive sleep apnea occurrences are reduced from an initial level to a treatment level, and reducing the application of the electric signal while the number of obstructive sleep apnea occurrences remain generally at or below the treatment level.

  • Patent number: 10595985
    Abstract: Described are methods and apparatus for use in supporting tissue in a patient's body. In some embodiments, the patient's breast or another tissue is supported. One method involves introducing a superior soft tissue anchor into a patient, the anchor having an inferiorly facing total surface area; and introducing at least one inferior soft tissue anchor into the patient, such that the at least one inferior soft tissue anchor is suspended from the superior soft tissue anchor, the sum of all of the at least one inferior soft tissue anchors having a superiorly facing total surface area. The inferiorly facing total surface area of the superior anchor can be greater, such as at least two times greater than the superiorly facing total surface area of the at least one inferior anchor.

  • Publication number: 20190348165
    Abstract: Systems, devices and methods are disclosed for a prescription-regulated software application and an associated medical device. In some aspects, a smart medicine-injection device (e.g., smart insulin pen) is configured to be in communication with a patient's companion device (e.g., smartphone) having a software application (prescription app) that serves the patient as a complimentary medical device to the smart medicine-injection device, in which only certain features and functionalities of the prescription app are fully operable based on device pairing with the smart medicine-injection device to unlock medical device capabilities only available to the patient through prescription.
