How do Solid State Batteries Power MedTech?

As the healthcare industry embraces the Internet of Things for more proactive patient health monitoring, how do solid state batteries provide the specific power required by MedTech implantable and on-the-body devices?

The healthcare sector is changing to embrace the inter-connectivity of the Internet of Things for more proactive patient health management. The rapid development of sensing devices for Wireless Body Area Networks is opening opportunities for continuous health monitoring in the patient’s home or place of care provision. Increasingly energy-efficient, these sensors are following a trend towards miniaturisation being deployed in implantable or on-the body devices including neurostimulators, leadless pace-makers, smart contact lenses and pulmonary blood pressure monitors. These devices treat many conditions such as Parkinson’s diseases, Dystonia, chronic pain, OCD, tremors, diabetes, cardiac conditions. In most cases, a solution needs to be provided to power these devices autonomously or wirelessly which requires small size, energy storage components.
