Medical Device Battery: The Ultimate FAQ Guide

What kind of battery is used in medical equipment?

NPP rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are perfectly used because they provide high energy density, lightweight, and higher capacity. LiFePO4 technology provides a wide range of temperatures, superior performance, and high cycle life. allowing the medical devices to operate for longer periods without needing frequent recharging. Additionally, lithium-ion batteries are lightweight and have a relatively long lifespan, making them suitable for portable medical equipment that requires mobility. These batteries are also known for their stable voltage output, which is crucial for accurate and consistent operation of medical devices.

What medical equipment uses lithium batteries?

Lithium batteries are widely used in various types of medical equipment due to their high energy density, longer lifespan, and lightweight nature. Lithium batteries offer significant benefits to medical equipment. Some examples of medical equipment that commonly use lithium batteries include:

  • Implantable Medical Devices: Lithium batteries power devices such as pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), neurostimulators, and cochlear implants. These devices require long-lasting, reliable power sources to sustain their operation for extended periods within the human body.
  • Portable Medical Devices: Many portable medical devices like blood glucose meters, infusion pumps, portable oxygen concentrators, and electronic thermometers use lithium batteries. The lightweight nature of lithium batteries makes these devices more compact and easily portable for patients who need continuous monitoring or treatment.
  • Diagnostic Equipment: Various diagnostic devices like portable ultrasound machines, handheld ECG monitors, and pulse oximeters rely on lithium batteries for power. These battery-powered instruments enable healthcare professionals to conduct tests and gather data conveniently, especially in remote or challenging settings.
  • Medical Imaging Equipment: Lithium batteries can be found in imaging devices such as handheld ultrasound scanners, portable X-ray machines, and mobile computerized tomography (CT) scanners. The mobility and reliability of lithium batteries play a crucial role in providing imaging services in different healthcare settings.
  • Electric Wheelchairs and Mobility Aids: Lithium batteries are commonly used in electric wheelchairs and other mobility aids like mobility scooters. They provide a high energy density and extended range of operation, allowing individuals with limited mobility to move around more freely.

What is a medical grade battery?

NPP medical grade battery is designed and manufactured for use in medical devices. NPP offer custom battery OEM packs for high reliability applications, from medical vehicles, defibrillators, and scanners to MRI machines and medical analyzers. These batteries are built to meet stringent safety and reliability standards to ensure they can power medical equipment accurately and consistently.

Key points about medical grade batteries:

Safety: Medical grade batteries undergo rigorous testing to ensure they are safe to use in healthcare settings. They are designed to minimize the risk of leakage, overheating, or explosion.
Reliability: These batteries are highly reliable, providing consistent power for medical devices. They are designed to have stable voltage levels and long-lasting performance.
Compatibility: Medical grade batteries are often tailored to fit specific medical devices. They come in various shapes, sizes, and voltages to meet the requirements of different equipment.
Regulatory Compliance: Medical grade batteries adhere to strict regulatory standards, such as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 62133 standard. Compliance with these standards ensures the batteries meet international safety and performance requirements.
Application: Medical grade batteries are used in a wide range of medical devices, including implantable medical devices, patient monitoring systems, defibrillators, infusion pumps, and many others.
It is important to note that when using medical devices, manufacturers typically recommend using batteries specifically approved for their equipment to ensure optimal performance and patient safety.

Why is lithium used in Medical Equipment Batteries?

The Lithium’s high electrochemical potential makes it an important factor of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries with high energy density. Lithium, the lightest metal and the least dense solid element, has become important positive pole material for lithium batteries.

Lithium in Batteries:

  • High energy density: Lithium-based batteries, such as lithium-ion (Li-ion) and lithium-polymer (Li-poly), offer high energy density, meaning they can store a large amount of energy in a relatively small and lightweight package. This makes them suitable for portable electronic devices like smartphones, laptops, and electric vehicles.
  • Rechargeable nature: Lithium-based batteries are rechargeable, allowing users to reuse them multiple times. They can be charged and discharged efficiently, maintaining their capacity over many cycles.
  • Enhanced performance: Lithium batteries have a low self-discharge rate, meaning they retain their charge for a long time when not in use. Additionally, they provide high power output, enabling them to deliver the energy required for demanding applications.
