A battery-powered infusion pump for delivery of insulin or other medicament may collect and store data related to the pump. The infusion pump can communicate some or all of the stored data to another device, and control the timing and amount of data communicated in order to conserve battery life.

A portable infusion pump can communicate with continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to receive continuous feedback relating to a users 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. Because patient behavior can interfere with the accuracy and efficacy of such closed loop or semi-closed loop therapy, a system can employ various mechanisms for manual temporary suspension of closed-loop therapy when a patient is aware that current or future behavior may inhibit therapy.


An infusion pump system providing therapy to a patient in a closed-loop or semi-closed loop mode can safely automatically revert to open-loop therapy. The system stores a default open-loop basal rate profile in memory. The system also continually tracks the insulin on board for the patient over a plurality of closed-loop therapy intervals. When an error or event occurs requiring reversion to open-loop therapy, the system automatically provides therapy according to the open-loop basal rate profile and the tracked insulin on board amount.

A system and method provide for enhanced reliability and safety of programming and/or operating a medical device, such as an infusion pump, with a remote control device, such as a mobile phone (e.g., a smartphone). A safety processor acts as an intermediary device between the smartphone and medical device to review transmissions from the smartphone prior to the transmissions being delivered to the medical device. The safety processor can determine whether the smartphone is compatible with the medical device by checking the type and version of the smartphone as well as the versions of the operating software and/or firmware resident on the phone. The safety processor can also check whether the operating command entered into the smartphone is within acceptable parameters.

A patch pump utilizes piezoelectricity to dispense medicament from a cartridge syringe to a patient. Pump can include a plurality of piezoelectric elements that when energized cause linear motion of a pushrod that interfaces with the syringe in the cartridge to advance the syringe and dispense the medicament. The high torque generated by the piezoelectric elements is directly converted into the same amount of torque on the lead screw, so no torque increasing gear reduction system is needed and the pushrod utilized to drive the syringe can be contained within and connected directly to the motor assembly. Such a piezoelectric-based system can therefore be made smaller and with fewer moving parts than an electromagnetic motor of the same capability such that the pump has a smaller size than has heretofore been possible with prior art electromagnetic-based syringe pumps and other pumps that utilize gear reduction systems.


Embodiments are directed to portable infusion devices, systems, and methods of using the same for dispensing materials. In some cases, the devices, systems and methods may be used for infusing a material such as medicament, e.g., insulin, into a body in need thereof.

An infusion cartridge for use with an ambulatory infusion system can be provided with a preattached infusion set to eliminate potential leakage, potential snagging and other inconveniences from tubing connectors. The infusion cartridge can include a rigid housing, a collapsible fluid reservoir within the housing and a dispense mechanism for drawing fluid from the reservoir and sending it out an outlet port. A length of tubing can be fixedly attached to the outlet port in fluid communication with the outlet port. The length of tubing can extend as a unitary construct from the outlet port to a connector that connects to a cannula for delivering fluid from the reservoir to a user.

Stored data is accessed over a computer network through a network data manager. Data may be stored and transferred to the network data manager from a product device using an uploader application. In one aspect, a request message containing an access requestor identifier is received at the network data manager from a client device for access to a data storage facility. The network data manager determines if the access requestor identifier is associated with a data record that identifies a product device having a registration record, and if it does, the network data manager transmits a data link to the client device, wherein the data link provides access to the data record by the client device over the computer network for a predetermined time period such that access to the data record is halted upon expiration of the predetermined time period. The client device may comprise, for example, a desktop or laptop computer. The product device, for example, may comprise a portable insulin pump that can be connected to the computer for data transfer to and from the network data manager.
