Lithium-ion polymer (LiPo) batteries can be used in a variety of portable medical devices, such as automatic dispensing machines, patient monitors, DNA devices, ultrasound, robotic surgery equipment, X-rays, MRI, PET scanners, heart and lung machines, diagnostic devices and CT blood analyzers.
Like other consumer electronic products, the development trend of medical devices is to make them smaller, lighter, more efficient, more reliable and more competitive. In the design of medical electronic equipment, the safety of patients and operators is the first consideration.
The safety standard of medical equipment depends on the proximity between the patient and the operator, the location and environment of the device, and the application.

Medical equipment has higher requirements for battery quality
Some people might think that LiPo batteries designed and certified for industrial applications may also be suitable for medical devices. But it is wrong,because industrial batteries are different from medical batteries in many ways. Most medical devices can operate at very low signals. Compared with the equipment used in industry, medical equipment is often more sensitive to electromagnetic interference, which makes electromagnetic compatibility, compliance and performance become a key issue in medical applications.
The safety standards for medical power solutions
Medical requirements are different from standard power supplies. For example, the enhanced or dual insulation of 240VAC power supply must be able to withstand the dielectric test of 4kVac in medical applications, while for industrial applications, the corresponding number is only 3kVac. Like spacing, this difference must be taken into account when selecting a power supply. If the insulation within the power supply is considered to be a small “basic” or “supplementary” barrier, the approved power supply below the 4kVac can be used as part of the enhanced barrier for medical applications.
In this case, additional isolation must be provided within the end product medical device through the device. Manufacturers should meet the requirements of strengthening the barrier between AC power supply and patients. So how do we choose safe and suitable medical batteries? Medical equipment requires reliable and ultra-safe batteries that are lightweight, efficient, economical, in line with CE,RoHS,CB and other standards.
How to choose battery packs for portable medical deveices ?
Lithium batteries can meet all these requirements, but not all lithium batteries are suitable for medical devices. Medical equipment original equipment manufacturers should pay attention to the selection of power supplies from reputable suppliers, preferably with mature experience in the field of medical electronics, and fully understand the special requirements and changing standards of the professional industry.
Obviously, it is not advisable to choose medical batteries based on the lowest price, because the high costs of lawsuits, brand damage, product recalls, and warranties caused by quality problems far outweigh any potential cost savings at the front end.Medical OEM should also take care to ensure that its selected power supplies are fully compliant with current versions of UL, IEC,CAS and EN medical safety standards and are certified.
