Powerful Medicine: Opportunities for Pairing New Bioelectronics Devices with Innovative Energy Storage

August 31, 2015 | State of the Market Report

The separate areas of medical technologies and energy storage are each innovating in parallel, but there is an increasing opportunity for developers to combine the two into health care devices that offer greater functionality, improved safety, and more comfortable form factors using the latest technology in batteries and other innovations for powering devices. We identify and analyze the need for long-lasting, advanced medical devices in key application areas: a) implantable devices, b) wearable, on-the-body devices, and c) standalone devices, either handheld or desktop. Our analysis highlights the key pain points of these applications, and uses the proprietary Lux Innovation Grid to identify key developers that are already making an impact on medical devices, with technologies ranging from Li-ion to thin-film batteries.
