Wireless charging company targets medical device industry
Resonant Link working with pacemaker, neurostimulator and ventricle assist device manufacturers
The firm’s wireless chargers are now available to support implantable devices, including pacemakers, neurostimulators, and ventricular assist devices for what it says will be faster recharging, deeper implant depths, simpler alignment for patients and smaller implants, with the goal of eliminating the need for surgeries to replace dead batteries.
“Patients need non-invasive power to live their best lives,” said Dr. Grayson Zulauf, CEO of Resonant Link. “Resonant Link’s technology enables small, fast and easy-to-use wireless charging, and we can’t wait to work with our partners to make wireless power the standard for implantables.”
Resonant Link says its multi-layer self-resonant structure, or MSRS, performs at five to 10 times the levels of existing wireless technologies and its chargers can reach over 99% efficiency and support implant depths up to 6 centimeters, all while meeting FDA-mandated temperature limits for implants.
