Exciting to think that Stereax batteries may one day save someone’s life. My legal department reminds me that these batteries are not yet certified for in-body applications, but sometime soon they will be. One day a person will benefit from carrying an implanted cardiac monitoring device powered by our miniature batteries. With this thought in mind, I recently attended Heart Rhythm Congress 22 in Birmingham, UK, aiming to learn more about the industry that manufactures pacemakers, cardiac sensing monitors, defibrillators etc.
HRC22 offered plenty of oral presentations summarizing studies and trials taking place all over the world but particularly in the UK – from Glasgow, Middlesborough, Liverpool, Oxford or London to name a few. Outside the lecture rooms though, in the exhibition hall, the biggest medical device companies were not UK-based, but mostly from the USA or Europe.
