EaglePicher’s implantable energy source promises to have numerous applications in micro-medical procedures

Business in Vancouver March 20-26, 2007; issue 908

Author: Grant Wing

Surrey’s EaglePicher Medical Power has developed what it believes is the world’s smallest implantable battery, an innovation that could establish a new level of miniaturization for bionic implants to restore hearing and vision.

The implantable battery, about the size of a grain of rice, is 50 per cent smaller and lighter than previously available batteries and, according to EaglePicher, is theoretically capable of powering implants for up to 15 years. Its size and cylindrical shape allow the device to be implanted surgically through a small incision with minimally invasive catheter procedures.

EaglePicher Medical Power Releases World’s Smallest Implantable Medical Battery

New Line of Micro Devices Are Now a Possibility

Vancouver, BC, Canada, 5 March 2007 – EaglePicher Medical Power today announced the successful qualification of the industry's smallest implantable-grade medical battery. The battery’s size and shape (cylindrical, 0.260” long x 0.090” diameter) enables a device so small that it can be deployed via a minimally-invasive catheter procedure rather than traditional implantation surgery. The device is presently undergoing clinical trials in Europe.
The Micro Battery, which is at least 50% smaller and lighter than known commercially available products, is based on a proprietary new cell construction developed by EaglePicher Medical Power. Electrical capacity exceeds the original design objective by a factor of five with the result that it can theoretically power the device for more than 15 years. The Micro Battery will create new opportunities for device manufacturers in Neurological Catheters, Cardiovascular Monitoring, and Neural Prostheses (Retinal implants, Cochlear Implants).
