  • Patent number: 10966771
    Abstract: An expandable implant for treating bone preferably in a minimally invasive manner includes a preferably cylindrical core element extending along a longitudinal axis and preferably a plurality of nestable, expandable sleeves extending along a longitudinal axis for placement radially about the core element. The plurality of nestable sleeves are sequentially insertable over the core element in such a manner that a first nestable sleeve is inserted over the core element and each subsequently inserted nestable sleeve is received between the core element and the previously inserted nestable sleeve such that the insertion of each additional sleeve causes each previously inserted sleeve to outwardly expand.

  • Patent number: 10932672
    Abstract: Systems and methods for remote and host monitoring communication are disclosed. In some implementations, monitoring systems can comprise a host monitoring device associated with a Host communicatively coupled to one or more remote monitoring devices associated with Remote Monitors. The host monitoring device can send communications based at least in part on analyte measurements of a Host sensor and/or other contextual data giving such measurements context. Different remote monitoring devices can receive different communications based at least in part on the role of the respective Remote Monitors relative to the Host. These roles can be reflected in classifications of Remote Monitors.

  • Publication number: 20210042215
    Abstract: A method for generating an automated test configured to test a system under test. The system under test has a plurality of operational states, at least one operational state having one or more executable actions associated therewith operable to execute predetermined operations and/or transition the system under test between operational states. The method includes the steps of: defining a model of the system under test comprising a plurality of model states; defining one or more selectable model actions; associating one or more test description sections with one or more model actions; selecting a sequence of model actions; and utilising the test description sections associated with the selected sequence of model actions to define a sequence of operation commands for execution on the system under test as an automated test.

  • Patent number: 10853226
    Abstract: A method for defining an automated test is configured to test a system under test. The system under test includes a plurality of operational states, at least one operational state having executable actions associated therewith operable to execute predetermined operations and/or transition the system under test between operational states. The method includes a) defining an executable model of the system under test including a plurality of model states; and b) defining one or more selectable model actions, each model action representative of one or more executable actions on the system under test and configured such that one or more preconditions are assignable thereto. Each model action is configured to be available to be selected unless any preconditions assigned to the respective model action are not satisfied. The model is configured such that a test program is operable to select a sequence of available model actions to define an automated test.

  • Publication number: 20200323497
    Abstract: Devices and methods for providing a user with alerts are provided. The alerts may take different forms, such as an output to a display, a speaker, a vibration module, a shock module, etc. The alerts provide the user with sufficient information to take appropriate action, but the devices may be of limited functionality to enhance their compactness, discreetness, wearability, etc., while also lowering their cost to manufacture.

  • Publication number: 20200316296
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed that provide smart alerts to users, e.g., alerts to users about diabetic states that are only provided when it makes sense to do so, e.g., when the system can predict or estimate that the user is not already cognitively aware of their current condition, e.g., particularly where the current condition is a diabetic state warranting attention. In this way, the alert or alarm is personalized and made particularly effective for that user. Such systems and methods still alert the user when action is necessary, e.g., a bolus or temporary basal rate change, or provide a response to a missed bolus or a need for correction, but do not alert when action is unnecessary, e.g., if the user is already estimated or predicted to be cognitively aware of the diabetic state warranting attention, or if corrective action was already taken.
