  • Patent number: 10973983
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a drug delivery device comprising: a housing; a moveable number sleeve disposed within the housing and having numbers printed thereon; and a transparent window occupying an aperture of the housing and covering the number sleeve such that the number sleeve is visible through the transparent window. At least one region of the housing located adjacent to the transparent window is transparent to visible light and is in optical communication with the transparent window.

  • Patent number: 10806860
    Abstract: A supplemental device configured for attachment to an injection device, the supplemental device comprising: a camera configured to generate camera output indicative of a scene viewable by the camera, and to be located on an optical path with a surface of an injection device attached to the supplemental device in use; a light source having an emission spectrum and configured to illuminate the surface with light within the emission spectrum in use; and a filter configured to be located on the optical path between the camera and the surface in use, the filter being substantially opaque to light across the entire emission spectrum of the light source and substantially transparent to light of at least one frequency outside the emission spectrum of the light source.

  • Publication number: 20200306405
    Abstract: A capsule for a volatile substance distribution system includes a housing having a first end and a second end and that defines a longitudinal axis that extends between the first end and the second end. The capsule also includes an inlet port disposed proximate the first end and an outlet port disposed proximate the second end. Additionally, the capsule includes a volatile substance member within the housing. The first end is configured to be removably supported by a base unit with the inlet port fluidly connecting with an air outlet of the base unit for receiving an airflow from the air outlet that moves into the housing and across the volatile substance member as the airflow flows from the inlet port to the outlet port. The inlet port is defined by a tapered inlet surface that directs the airflow radially with respect to the longitudinal axis.

  • Publication number: 20200254130
    Abstract: A capsule of a volatile substance distribution system is configured for use with a base unit having a fan and an air outlet configured to direct air driven by the fan away from the base unit. The capsule includes a housing that extends along a longitudinal axis between a first end and a second end. The first end defines an inlet port and the second end defines an outlet port. The housing houses a volatile substance member. The capsule further includes an outlet seal member that seals and unseals the outlet port. The housing, when engaged with the base unit and with the outlet seal member in the unsealed position, is configured to receive the air from the air outlet that flows into the inlet port, past the volatile substance member, and out of the outlet port.

  • Publication number: 20200254851
    Abstract: A capsule is configured for use with a base unit having a fan and an air opening for an airflow of air driven by the fan. The capsule includes a housing with a port. The housing engages and disengages the base unit. The capsule also includes a volatile substance member and a seal member that is supported by the housing for movement between a sealed position and an unsealed position. The seal member seals the port when the capsule is disengaged from the base unit. The projection is received in the capsule when engaged with the base unit to support the seal member in the unsealed position such that air moved by the fan flows through the port.

  • Publication number: 20190351142
    Abstract: A supplemental device configured for attachment to an injection device, the supplemental device comprising: a camera configured to generate camera output indicative of a scene viewable by the camera, and to be located on an optical path with a surface of an injection device attached to the supplemental device in use; a light source having an emission spectrum and configured to illuminate the surface with light within the emission spectrum in use; and a filter configured to be located on the optical path between the camera and the surface in use, the filter being substantially opaque to light across the entire emission spectrum of the light source and substantially transparent to light of at least one frequency outside the emission spectrum of the light source.

  • Patent number: 9721176
    Abstract: A supplemental device for gathering information concerning the use of an injection device, the supplemental device having a first camera sensor portion for generating a first camera output indicative of a scene in the field of view of the first camera sensor portion, a second camera sensor portion for generating a second camera output indicative of a scene in the field of view of the second camera sensor portion, and at least one processor. The processor configured to use the first camera output to determine whether a rotational speed of an object in the field of view exceeds a threshold speed, if it is determined the rotational speed of the object does not exceed the threshold speed, to process the second camera output to identify a feature provided on the or another object, and if it is determined the rotational speed of the object does exceed the threshold speed, to refrain from attempting to identify the feature.
