Those products include the company’s hydrogen gas-generating cell (H2 cell), which is used to help “smart pills” administer a dosed medication at an exact place within the body. The principle of an H2 cell is based on the build-up of gas pressure, which triggers the release of substances through displacement, according to the company.
Varta also offers a high-performance lithium-ion cell for applications such as insulin pumps and smart monitoring systems, and its lithium primary and silver oxide button cells are used to provide energy for the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT).
“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,” said Philipp Miehlich, GM of OEM Varta Microbattery, in a news release. “The medical sector will make a quantum leap in the coming years, which we would like to advance further and faster with our products.”
