  • Patent number: 11903697
    Abstract: Systems and methods described provide dynamic and intelligent ways to change the required level of user interaction during use of a monitoring device. The systems and methods generally relate to real time switching between a first or initial mode of user interaction and a second or new mode of user interaction. In some cases, the switching will be automatic and transparent to the user, and in other cases user notification may occur. The mode switching generally affects the user's interaction with the device, and not just internal processing. The mode switching may relate to calibration modes, data transmission modes, control modes, or the like.

  • Patent number: 11714060
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided that address the need to frequently calibrate analyte sensors, according to implementation. In more detail, systems and methods provide a preconnected analyte sensor system that physically combines an analyte sensor to measurement electronics during the manufacturing phase of the sensor and in some cases in subsequent life phases of the sensor, so as to allow an improved recognition of sensor environment over time to improve subsequent calibration of the sensor.

  • Publication number: 20230228373
    Abstract: A handheld electronic device case with quick-release anchoring capability includes a device case main body operable to engage a handheld electronic device and provide a protective cover therefor. A vacuum formation-and-release actuator is operable to establish a releasable vacuum connection between a rear surface of the handheld device, or a base of the case main body, or or an independent base of a universal vacuum connector incorporating the vacuum formation-and-release actuator, and a reference surface in order to detachably mount the handheld device to the reference surface. The releasable vacuum connection is provided by a controlled pressure zone that maintains a negative pressure differential relative to an external ambient pressure. The releasable vacuum connection is releasable by virtue of the vacuum formation-and-release actuator being movable in a manner that vents the controlled pressure zone.

  • Publication number: 20230228290
    Abstract: A universal quick-release vacuum connector includes a base removably attachable to an object. A vacuum formation-and-release actuator includes a movable anchor member that establishes a releasable vacuum connection with a reference surface. The anchor member includes a flexible outer seal member, a central hub integrally formed with the flexible outer seal member, and a vent port extending through the central hub. A vent port closure member closes or assists in closing a vent port inner end depending on the position of the anchor member relative to the base to establish a controlled pressure zone that maintains a negative pressure differential relative to an external ambient pressure. The releasable vacuum connection is releasable by virtue of the anchor member and the base being movable relative to each other in a manner that vents the controlled pressure zone while the base remains attached to the object.

  • Publication number: 20230032816
    Abstract: The present embodiments relate generally to systems and methods for measuring an analyte in a host. More particularly, the present embodiments provide sensor applicators and methods of use with activation that implant the sensor, withdraw the insertion needle, engage the transmitter with the housing, and disengage the applicator from the housing. Systems and methods according to present principles allow for such steps to occur without significant loss of spring force, and without deleterious effects such as seal slingshotting.

  • Patent number: 11525475
    Abstract: An object holder with quick-release anchoring capability includes an object carrier having an object carrier base. A vacuum release actuator on the object carrier base is displaceable to separate from the object. An anchor member carried by vacuum release actuator includes outer and inner seal members and an interconnecting vent port. The outer seal member is arranged to form a substantially airtight seal with the reference surface that defines an outer controlled pressure zone. The inner seal member is arranged to form a substantially airtight seal with the object that defines an inner controlled pressure zone. The vent port extends between the outer and inner controlled pressure zones. During operation, the controlled pressure zones can be vented by manipulating the object carrier away from the reference surface to separate the object and the vacuum release actuator until the inner seal member breaks its substantially airtight seal with the object.

A vacuum release actuator on the object carrier base is displaceable to separate from the object. An anchor member carried by vacuum release actuator includes outer and inner seal members and an interconnecting vent port. The outer and inner seal members are arranged to form substantially airtight seals with the reference surface and the object, respectively, that define controlled pressure zones. The vent port extends between the outer and inner controlled pressure zones. The inner seal member has a substantially non-folding configuration that prevents excessive seal elongation prior to separation from the object. During operation, the controlled pressure zones can be vented by manipulating the object carrier away from the reference surface to separate the object and the vacuum release actuator until the inner seal member breaks its substantially airtight seal with the object.
