  • Patent number: 10458973
    Abstract: According to some embodiments of the present disclosure, a device and method for determining an allowable amount of blood glucose (bG) of a patient is disclosed. The method further includes receiving a current bG measurement, determining a target bG value, and determining a correction delta bG value based on one or more advice history records. The method includes determining a correction meal rise value and determining a maximum allowed bG value based on the target bG value, the correction delta bG value, and the correction meal rise value. The method includes setting the allowable amount of bG value equal to the maximum allowed bG value when the current bG measurement is greater than the target bG value and determining the allowable amount of bG value using the target bG value and the correction delta bG value when the current bG measurement is less than the target bG value.

  • Patent number: 10103479
    Abstract: A cable connector is provided for coupling to and mounted within the internal cavity of an electrical box for securing an electrical cable passing through an opening in the electrical box. The cable connector includes a body having a first end positioned next to or adjacent the cable opening in the electrical box and a second end spaced from the first end and the cable opening. At least one and typically two retaining members are spring biased from the first end of the body and extend into a cable passage of the body toward the second end. A front wall is provided at the second end of the body with an opening for receiving the wires and forming a stop member to prevent the armor sheathing from passing through the front wall.

  • Patent number: 9793696
    Abstract: An electrical box assembly includes an electrical box having a side wall and an open top end and a conduit access port opening extending through the side wall and having a dimension to receive a conduit. A seal is received in the opening for surrounding the conduit. A clamp is positioned in the opening in the side wall and is positioned between the side wall and the seal for contacting an outer surface of the seal. An actuator is coupled to the electrical box and extends through the side wall into the opening in the side wall to contact the conduit clamp to constrict said conduit clamp and seal into clamping engagement with the conduit.
