  • Patent number: 11166635
    Abstract: A glucose monitoring system can make use of electrocardiograph (ECG) data and bioimpedance data acquired from a wearable device. The ECG data and bioimpedance data can each be processed to obtain a glucose level. These values can be processed together to obtain an adapted glucose value. In some cases, photoplethysmography data can also be used to assist in processing of the ECG data. The various types of data can be acquired from sensors on a wearable device. The wearable device can be removably coupled to a user's skin, such as via an adhesive substrate. In some cases, the wearable device can include a reusable electronics module that couples to replaceable electrodes on a replaceable adhesive substrate.

  • Patent number: 11157844
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to analyzing developmental progress and productivity of users based upon monitored activity features, and inferring expected levels of productivity for future time intervals. By analyzing code check-ins submitted by a user over a time interval, as other features associated with user activities during the time interval, a metric indicating a level of quality or productivity for the time interval can be determined. Based upon the determined metrics for the time intervals, expected levels of productivity for the user can be inferred for future time intervals. In addition, tasks can be automatically performed to reduce an amount of impact on the productivity of the user during time intervals of expected high productivity, such as scheduling of tasks outside of the time intervals, adjusting certain settings of a user device, and/or the like.

  • Patent number: 11154204
    Abstract: A system for acquiring electrocardiograph (ECG) and bioimpedance (BI) data is disclosed. The system (an ECG/BI measurement system) can use as few as one or two pairs of electrodes, permitting wearable devices employing the ECG/BI measurement system to be made into smaller, more comfortable, and more inconspicuous formats, as well as decreasing potential failure points in the measurement of electrical signals conducted between the system and the user. The system can measure both ECG and BI data using at least one shared pair of electrodes. In some cases, ECG and BI data are separately extracted from a measured signal across a shared pair of electrodes, while another pair of electrodes is being driven with a supply current. In other cases, internal switching can automatically switch a pair of electrodes between ECG-measuring circuitry and BI-measuring circuitry, such as based on a clock signal or other trigger.

  • Publication number: 20210317185
    Abstract: Modular synthetic receptors are provided. The synthetic receptors may include an extracellular domain capable of binding to one or more ligand molecules and may be released from the synthetic receptor after binding, a transmembrane domain derived from the Notch receptor, and an intracellular domain which may have one or more functional activities when released from the synthetic receptor. A method of use for the synthetic receptors is also provided, wherein upon binding of the extracellular domain to a specific ligand, the synthetic receptor undergoes proteolytic cleavage to release either or both the extracellular and intracellular domains. The extracellular binding domain, if released, may continue to bind to its cognate ligand and may carry one or more additional functional activities and the intracellular domain, if released, may stimulate or inhibit one or more intracellular activities.
