26 Oct How advanced lithium batteries enable medical devices to be miniaturized
By Sol Jacobs, Vice President & General Manager, Tadiran Batteries
Modern medical devices are become increasingly sophisticated and miniaturized, demanding more for advanced battery-powered solutions. Lithium batteries are allowing medical devices to become smaller and more ergonomic without sacrificing power or performance.
Lithium batteries are paving the way by powering a wide variety of medical devices, including automatic external defibrillators, surgical power tools, robotic cameras, RFID asset tags, infusion pumps, bone growth stimulators, glucose monitors, blood oxygen meters and cauterizers. Lithium battery chemistry is preferred for delivering the highest specific energy (energy per unit weight) and energy density (energy per unit volume) of any battery type, along with nominal open circuit voltages ranging from 1.7V to 3.9V, which enables products to be miniaturized.
We are honored to serve as a manufacturer’s rep for Tadiran Batteries.
