  • Patent number: 10810908
    Abstract: Embodiments provided herein include a resettable injection training device having a body, a plunger slidable relative thereto, an injection simulation member and retractable and extendable shield, wherein the shield releasably locks in a retracted position prior to use. After use of the training device, the shield extends over the injection simulation member to prevent contact with the injection simulation member. Resetting of the slidable shield occurs by applying a force onto a distal end of the shield to retract the shield until a shield locking surface interacts with a locking surface on the body to maintain the shield in a retracted position. Release of the shield from a retracted position to an extended position may occur by moving the plunger toward a distal end of the body until a contact region at a proximal end of the plunger releases the shield locking surface from the body locking surface to release the shield.

  • Publication number: 20190377727
    Abstract: A data recipe may be automatically generated to provide requested information to a user. After the information is requested, one or more data sources may be interrogated to discover a plurality of data types of data stored in the data sources. The data types may be categorized to define a plurality of data recipe ingredients that are likely to be needed to provide the requested information. The data recipe ingredients may be compared with a reference data recipe. Based on the results of the comparison, a new data recipe that provides the requested information may be made by either modifying the reference data recipe or by proceeding independently of the reference data recipe. The new data recipe may, for example, calculate a key performance indicator used to measure organizational performance.

  • Publication number: 20190321563
    Abstract: A container for delivering a medicament to a target location includes a housing having a proximal end and a distal end, the housing including a cap locking tab at the distal end, and a vial containing medicament. The container includes a plunger slidable within the vial from the proximal end to the distal end of the vial to dispel the medicament, an injection member associated with the distal end, such that medicament dispelled from the vial passes through the injection member to the target location, and a slidable interaction member associated with the distal end of the vial configured to slide with the vial. An interaction between the slidable interaction member and cap locking tab causes the cap locking tabs to bias outward, and placement of a safety cap on the container after use locks the safety cap onto the container via the interaction with the cap locking tabs. The container may further include a resistance feature to control movement of the plunger rod relative to the vial.
