  • Publication number: 20210212486
    Abstract: Briefly, a drinking set is provided that has a cup and a flow control disk set fully inside the cup. The flow control disk is constructed for creating a tortured flow path for any fluid flowing out of the cup. In this way, spills are substantially reduced or minimized, and the user has a stable and predictable sipping experience, even when the cup is jostled or violently moved. Fluid moving from the cup first hits a set of steeply angled entry fins, which absorb or reflect energy in the fluid. The fluid passes through a set of small entry openings, and flow to a set of exit fins, where the fluid strikes a face of the exit fins and changes direction to a set of larger exit openings. This tortured fluid path causes the drinking fluid to have a controlled flow and reduced kinetic energy as it approaches the user's mouth, multiple changes in flow direction, and provides several obstacles for absorbing kinetic energy and thus slowing the flow of the fluid.

  • Publication number: 20210212563
    Abstract: An integrated system for the monitoring and treating diabetes is provided, including an integrated receiver/hand-held medicament injection pen, including electronics, for use with a continuous glucose sensor. In some embodiments, the receiver is configured to receive continuous glucose sensor data, to calculate a medicament therapy (e.g., via the integrated system electronics) and to automatically set a bolus dose of the integrated hand-held medicament injection pen, whereby the user can manually inject the bolus dose of medicament into the host. In some embodiments, the integrated receiver and hand-held medicament injection pen are integrally formed, while in other embodiments they are detachably connected and communicated via mutually engaging electrical contacts and/or via wireless communication.

  • Publication number: 20210142912
    Abstract: Systems and methods disclosed provide ways for Health Care Professionals (HCPs) to be involved in initial patient system set up so that the data received is truly transformative, such that the patient not just understands what all the various numbers mean but also how the data can be used. For example, in one implementation, a CGM device is configured for use by a HCP, and includes a housing and a circuit configured to receive a signal from a transmitter coupled to an indwelling glucose sensor. A calibration module converts the received signal into clinical units. A user interface is provided that is configured to display a measured glucose concentration in the clinical units. The user interface is further configured to receive input data about a patient level, where the input data about the patient level causes the device to operate in a mode appropriate to the patient level.

  • Patent number: 10980461
    Abstract: Systems and methods for processing sensor data and self-calibration are provided. In some embodiments, systems and methods are provided which are capable of calibrating a continuous analyte sensor based on an initial sensitivity, and then continuously performing self-calibration without using, or with reduced use of, reference measurements. In certain embodiments, a sensitivity of the analyte sensor is determined by applying an estimative algorithm that is a function of certain parameters. Also described herein are systems and methods for determining a property of an analyte sensor using a stimulus signal. The sensor property can be used to compensate sensor data for sensitivity drift, or determine another property associated with the sensor, such as temperature, sensor membrane damage, moisture ingress in sensor electronics, and scaling factors.
