Patent
Animas Corporation | Date: 2017-01-20

A visualization and analysis tool is provided for an insulin delivery system, such as an artificial pancreas, in which insulin is delivered based upon a system algorithm using a pump that is patient controllable in order to adjust insulin delivery relative to a baseline delivery rate; e.g., pre-set basal rate and a sensor for measuring glucose levels. The tool is configured with a controller of the system to detect and log events that are based on differences between actual insulin delivered by the system and the baseline delivery rate. These detected events are metrics that provide information relating to the therapeutic value of the system which, without such metrics, may be overlooked or unnoticed, thereby fostering trust and confidence in the delivery system. In addition, information is provided which may enable further improved glucose control.

Described and shown herein is simple dynamic model for insulin time-action profiles. Various aspects are suitable for implementation in an embedded system such as an insulin pump, or a handheld device such as a pump remote control. Various aspects can be used as an off-line modeling tool running on a smartphone to assist patients in their treatment, or can be used as part of a closed-loop control algorithm for an artificial pancreas.

The invention is generally directed toward a novel fluid cartridge for medical infusion devices. The disclosed invention describes various protection sleeves and other structures for protecting the luer connection of a lineset that connects to the cartridge, to reduce the stresses placed on the luer connection when the lineset is worn on the body of patient, and to reduce the chances for unintentional disconnection, breakage, or leakage.


A infusion device with a durable portion and a disposable portion, comprising a reservoir that holds a liquid medicament, a pump that displaces the liquid medicament from the reservoir to the patient, at least one valve that conducts the displaced medicament from the reservoir, and a fluid conduit that conducts the medicament from the reservoir, to the pump, and to the patient. The device includes a layered structure that defines the reservoir and fluid conduit.

Described is a housing for a drug infusion pump. Generally, the housing is of a hybrid design having a rigid portion containing the drive mechanism and any desired electronic components, and a pliant portion that improves the adherence of the patch-style infusion device to the body of the patient.

Animas Corporation | Date: 2014-06-04

Described is novel system for delivering medication to a patient via an infusion pump. The infusion pump includes mechanical means for delivering medication that are locked and unlocked via a remote control device. The remote control device is configured to be programmed with a desired dosage of medication and to unlock the infusion device to permit the patient, user, or healthcare provider to mechanically deliver only the desired amount of medication by turning a dial. Once the desired dosage of medication has been manually delivered, the remote control locks the infusion device.

A decision support system includes a measurement device configured to continuously measure a physiological parameter of a patient. An insulin delivery device provides insulin to the patient per an initial basal profile and the parameter measurements. A storage device holds historical data of insulin delivery to the patient. A processor determines deviations of the delivery of insulin from the basal profile for one or more time period(s) using the historical data, computes a respective first basal-profile adjustment for each of the one or more time period(s) using the determined deviations, and annunciates the computed first basal-profile adjustment(s). A method of recommending a basal-rate adjustment includes measuring the parameter, infusing the patient with insulin and storing the historical data, determining the deviations from the basal profile, computing the first basal-profile adjustments, and annunciating the computed first basal-profile adjustment(s).
