Demand is increasing in the medical device market for pulse power solutions in appliances such as insulin pumps. There is also a growing medical telemetric market that couple GPRS with GPS, accelerometers, temperature and other biometric sensors in wearable devices for patient location, medical alerts, data acquisition, or the controlled release of medications.
CAP-XX supercapacitors meet the low ESR, low noise, and small size requirements of these devices. Coupled with their ability to provide back-up power and extend the useful life of the battery, the flexibility and environmental friendliness of CAP-XX supercapacitors make them particularly suitable for patient care and medical monitoring.
