  • Patent number: 10379660
    Abstract: A medical fluid treatment machine comprising: a pump configured to pump medical fluid to and from a patient; an input device configured to: display touch buttons, at least some of the touch buttons each representing a grapheme, and detect haptic interactions between a user and the touch buttons, wherein an interaction causes information related to the touch button to be received by the medical fluid treatment machine; and a control unit configured to control the input device, wherein controlling the input device includes causing the input device to switch between displaying i) a first set of touch buttons that correspond to a first language, and ii) a second set of touch buttons that correspond to a second language.

  • Patent number: 9839735
    Abstract: A dialysis machine (e.g., a peritoneal dialysis (PD) machine) can include a microphone and a component that provide voice recognition capabilities to the machine. For example, in some implementations, the component is configured to identify and/or authenticate voice commands that are issued by a user. The voice command may cause the dialysis machine to carry out a dialysis function. Alternatively, the voice command may cause a user interface of the dialysis machine (e.g., a display, such as a touchscreen display) to be adjusted. A dialysis machine can also include a speaker for providing spoken information to a user. For example, in some implementations, the speaker can provide spoken instructions to assist the user in machine set-up, calibration, and/or operation. Such spoken instructions can be particularly useful in a home dialysis setting. In some implementations, the speaker can provide spoken alarms that are related to alarm conditions.
