VARTA supplies energy for the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)

At the Virtual Compamed 2020, which takes place from 16th to 19th November, the technology company from Ellwangen (Germany) will present its broad product portfolio of microbatteries for intelligent applications in the medical sector. One of the highlights is the Hydrogen Gas Generating cell (H2 cell), which is used, among other applications, for so-called Smart Pills.

The hydrogen generator cell from VARTA’s product portfolio makes innovative and mobile dosing devices such as Smart Pills possible: A capsule which can be swallowed provides diagnostic information and can administer a dosed medication at an exact place. The principle of an H2 cell is based on the build-up of gas pressure, which triggers the release of substances through displacement.

In addition to the H2 cell, VARTA, with the latest CoinPower® series, offers a high-performance Lithium-Ion cell for various technologically intelligent applications such as insulin pumps or smart monitoring systems, for example for infants, seniors or athletes. VARTA also provides optimal energy for products of the Internet of Medical Things with its proven and powerful Lithium Primary and Silver oxide button cells. The Ellwangen-based company is thus making an important contribution to the further development of medical devices which, thanks to their small size, help to improve the quality of life, safety and comfort for the users.

„Our microbatteries work with the latest technology that is available on the market and thus enable many smart and vital applications and devices of the Internet of Medical Things. The medical sector will make a quantum leap in the coming years, which we would like to advance further and faster with our products“, Philipp Miehlich, General Manager OEM VARTA Microbattery, says.

You will find a variety of applications in the Medical-Clip.

At the Virtual Compamed, Johannes Durschang, Key Account Manager at VARTA Microbattery, will speak in an online session on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at 10:00 am focussing on the topic of "Technologies To Enable Smart Medicals". The participation in the online event is free. The registration can be done using the following link
