  • Publication number: 20190328965
    Abstract: A drug delivery device includes a housing, a primary container, a cannula, a delivery mechanism, an electrode, and a controller. The housing defines an interior cavity and a distal surface for contacting a patient during use of the drug delivery device. The primary container is disposed in the interior cavity of the housing and adapted to contain a drug. At least a portion of the cannula is electrically conductive, with the cannula being disposed in fluid communication with the primary container. The drug delivery device is adapted to occupy a storage state where a terminal end of the cannula is inside the housing and a delivery state where the terminal end of the cannula extends out through an opening in the distal surface of the housing. The delivery mechanism is disposed in the housing for selectively forcing the drug out of the primary container and through the cannula for delivery to a patient when the cannula occupies the delivery state. The electrode is disposed on the distal surface of the housing.

  • Publication number: 20180193562
    Abstract: A drug delivery device includes a casing and a storage container with a dose delivery member, at least a portion of which extends through an opening in the casing. A guard is movable relative to the casing between extended and retracted positions. The guard surrounds the extended portion of the dose delivery member in the extended position, and exposes the extended portion in the retracted position. An interference arrangement is included for providing selected threshold of resistance to movement of the guard from the extended position to the retracted position during insertion of the dose delivery member into body tissue. The arrangement has first and second members engaging one another to retain the guard in the extended position. The first or second member can move if the selected threshold of resistance is exceeded to allow the members to slide and allow the guard to move into the retracted position.

  • Patent number: 8496618
    Abstract: The fluid infusion system is disclosed that includes a pump housing that has a reservoir cavity and is designed to be pocketable. The reservoir cavity has a rim and helical coupling features formed on an interior face of the reservoir cavity. The fluid infusion system further has a reservoir that is removable from the reservoir cavity and the reservoir also has an open end. A removable cap coupled to the pump housing is also included in the fluid infusion system. The cap has corresponding coupling features, an exterior surface and a tab. The corresponding coupling features are defined to couple the cap to the pump housing while the tab is defined as a ridge that extends away from the exterior surface. The tab further has a port to accommodate fluid flow from the reservoir where the port defines and axis of rotation such that torque applied to the tab about the axis of rotation disengages the coupling between the cap and the pump housing.

  • Patent number: 8273061
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods for a connection interface between a reservoir or syringe, infusion set tubing, and an infusion pump are provided. A base is provided which is adapted to receive a reservoir and engage a cap. A piercing member, such as a needle, is disposed in the interior of the cap in such a manner that the needle is separated from the reservoir septum when the base is in a first detent position, and the needle pierces a reservoir septum when the base is in a second detent position. When the reservoir, the base and the cap are connected to form an integrated unit, this unit is then capable of being inserted and secured in the infusion pump housing. In some embodiments, an integral connector couples directly to the reservoir.
