VARTA Microbattery: CoinPower brings energy into digitised medicine and fitness

The way we deal with our own health is changing dramatically. What was previously discussed in a personal conversation with a doctor is increasingly shifting to "indirect" contact, for example via telemedicine. At the same time, more and more people rely on wearables for independent monitoring of medical parameters.

VARTA Microbattery's lithium-ion batteries with their high energy density and capacity have proven to be a reliable source of energy. The company, based in Ellwangen, Germany, will present its portfolio of lithium-ion batteries for medical applications and wearables on 11 September at the 35th Wearable Technologies Conference 2019 Asia in Bangkok, which takes place in conjunction with the Medical Fair Thailand, at booth WT113.
