  • Publication number: 20180353698
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and techniques are disclosed for administering and tracking medicine to patients and providing health management capabilities for patients and caregivers. In some aspects, a system includes an injection pen device including a dose setting mechanism, a dispensing mechanism, and an electronics unit to generate dose data associated with a dispensing event of a dose of the medicine dispensed from the injection pen device and time data associated with the dispensing event; a mobile device in wireless communication to receive and process the dose data; and a software application configured to determine a recommended dose based on health data and contextual data associated with a user of the injection pen device, the software application including a learning dose calculator module to adaptively calculate the recommended dose of the medicine based on time-relevant and circumstances-relevant data specific to the user of the injection pen device.

  • Patent number: 10016561
    Abstract: A computer implemented method of determining a clinical variables utilizing an insulin pump that includes initiating blood glucose measurements, initiating ingestion of carbohydrates and receiving input data based on the blood glucose measurements and the ingestion of carbohydrates and utilizing the data to calculate clinical variables. The invention may include presenting instructions to a patient to take various actions and to input various data. The clinical variables determined may be stored in memory and then used to calculate insulin doses and to send a signal to an insulin pump to infuse the insulin dose calculated.

  • Patent number: 9959391
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are disclosed for administering a medicament to a patient. In one aspect, a system includes an injection pen device in wireless communication with a mobile communication device. The injection pen device includes a housing including a chamber to encase a cartridge containing medicine, a dose setting and dispensing mechanism to set the mechanism to dispense a particular dose of the medicine from the loaded cartridge, a sensor unit to detect a dispensed dose based on positions and/or movements of the dose setting and dispensing mechanism, and an electronics unit in communication with the sensor unit to process the detected dispensed dose and time data associated with a dispensing event and to wirelessly transmit the dose data to a user's device. The mobile communication device provides a software application to provide the user with health information using the processed dose data.

  • Publication number: 20180110921
    Abstract: A portable infusion pump can communicate with glucose monitor, such as a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), to receive continuous feedback relating to a user's blood glucose level during insulin or other medicament therapy and can automatically deliver insulin to a user when the CGM data indicates a need for additional insulin. Due to potential unreliability in the correlation of the CGM data to the user's actual blood glucose level, risk mitigation can be employed to limit the amount of extra insulin that can be delivered by the pump in response to the CGM data.

  • Publication number: 20180092736
    Abstract: Described are methods and apparatus for use in supporting tissue in a patient's body. In some embodiments, the patient's breast or another tissue is supported. One method involves introducing a superior soft tissue anchor into a patient, the anchor having an inferiorly facing total surface area; and introducing at least one inferior soft tissue anchor into the patient, such that the at least one inferior soft tissue anchor is suspended from the superior soft tissue anchor, the sum of all of the at least one inferior soft tissue anchors having a superiorly facing total surface area. The inferiorly facing total surface area of the superior anchor can be greater, such as at least two times greater than the superiorly facing total surface area of the at least one inferior anchor.

  • Publication number: 20180055996
    Abstract: A portable medical device includes an interface for accepting a power supply and enabling data transfer while still connected to a human body. The interface may include a universal serial bus interface and may be coupled to a data isolation chip and a power isolation chip. A power controlling processor may determine how the supplied power, e.g., voltage, is supplied to other components within the infusion device. Additional circuitry within the system may provide a secure power transfer within the device to ensure user safety and ensure that a high frequency noise is properly attenuated.
