|20150253860||E-FIELD SENSING OF NON-CONTACT GESTURE INPUT FOR CONTROLLING A MEDICAL DEVICE - A system provides non-contact electric field (E-field) gesture interfacing with a medical device, such as a dialysis machine. A E-field device provides for gesture detection and command recognition of the gesture by a user, such as a health care practitioner (HCP), in connection with navigating and activating screens of a dialysis machine during a dialysis treatment without requiring the HCP to physically contact the dialysis machine. With the described system, the HCP does not need to re-glove each time a change is made to an on-going dialysis treatment when interfacing with a graphical display of the dialysis machine.||09-10-2015|
|20150238672||SELF CALIBRATING BLOOD CHAMBER - An optical blood monitoring system and corresponding method avoid the need to obtain a precise intensity value of the light impinging upon the measured blood layer during the analysis. The system is operated to determine at least two optical measurements through blood layers of different thickness but otherwise substantially identical systems. Due to the equivalence of the systems, the two measurements can be compared so that the bulk extinction coefficient of the blood can be calculated based only on the known blood layer thicknesses and the two measurements. Reliable measurements of various blood parameters can thereby be determined without certain calibration steps.||08-27-2015|
