Battery Packs for Medical Devices: Requirements and Certification Webinar

Batteries used in medical applications can be similar to batteries used in other applications. Still, depending on the type of medical device, medical batteries' requirements can be much more stringent, especially if the medical device charges the battery while in use.

Several design considerations must be addressed to ensure their safe use when used near or when the equipment is attached to the patient. Several regulatory requirements must be met. Testing is required to verify the safe operation of the battery and the medical device.

Battery Packs for Medical Devices: Requirements and Certification

This process can be simplified by implementing various design techniques to ensure a robust design while getting to market faster with lower risks—these methods, along with a high-level overview of the major regulatory hurdles that must be met, will be discussed.

In this webinar we review medical device battery pack requirements and certifications including how requirements are different from stand-alone batteries as well as what is needed for certain medical products.
