Biomedical Batteries Workshop

Batteries have been essential components of medical devices, delivering life-sustaining and even life-saving therapies. They play a critical role in dictating the safety, performance, and reliability of many medical devices. The rapid growth of medical devices requires high-performance batteries, and recent advances in battery safety, energy/power density, and reliability provide new opportunities to significantly enhance medical devices’ capabilities. However, there is insufficient communication between the battery and medical-device communities — impeding the timely transition of advanced battery technology into medical devices. In addition, medical devices have unique requirements for batteries such as impeccable reliability, absolute safety and low self-discharge, presenting new challenges to battery researchers.
