  • Publication number: 20180184905
    Abstract: The invention provides for a medical system comprising a control unit and a medical appliance. The medical appliance comprises: a first processor and a monitoring system for measuring an analyte concentration subcutaneously. The control unit comprises a second processor and a second memory with a persistent partition and an application partition containing a medical application and application data comprising a medical data entry. The medical application backs up the application data as archived data in the persistent partition. The first processor is programmed to: record the analyte concentration, generate the medical data entry using the analyte concentration, and transfer the medical data entry to the control unit. The second memory further contains an operating system operable for de-installing the medical application without deleting the archived data.

  • Patent number: 7946171
    Abstract: An analysis device is provided comprising a housing having at least two housing parts, a measuring unit and a processor provided therein for purposes of the functionality of the analysis device and generation of analysis data, wherein the device comprises a lock element for producing a generally fixed mechanical connection between the at least two housing parts. Providing such a lock element allows the analysis device to be checked for quality control and/or functionality purposes before the lock element is fitted to the housing, and if the device requires service or repair as a result of such checks then the housing can be reopened without damage to the housing or other aspects of the device. Once the lock element is fitted into a locked position for locking the housing together, subsequent reopening of the housing causes structural effects, including damage or destruction, to either or both of the lock element and the housing or housing parts, ensuring that such reopening becomes apparent to the user.
