Batteries play a significant role in the overall safety, performance, and reliability of many life-saving and life-sustaining medical devices. As more medical devices become computerized, compact, and mobile, the number of battery-powered medical devices will continue to increase. This meeting is a way to better understand and address the potential challenges related to the design/development, selection, purchase, use, and maintenance of battery-powered medical devices. It’s also designed to initiate greater collaboration among stakeholders to develop best practices, training, and industry standards for battery-powered medical devices.
