Batteries and holders in medical applications

Product Announcement from Memory Protection Devices, Inc.

Memory Protection Devices has unmatched experience in serving the medical community. Unlike many battery holder manufacturers, who are unfamiliar with the unique challenges facing medical device design, MPD recognizes the design needs of the industry. There are many differences between the average consumer applications of holders and a medical device including more stringent safety standards, less tolerance for power discontinuity, and the need to avoid costly recalls.

MPD has contributed to many medical device projects:

  • Defibrillators
  • Dermoscopy
  • Glucose Meters
  • Nebulizers
  • Pumps (breast, impotence, and medical cement)

Because each project presents a different set of requirements, our engineers will work with your design team to understand the basic conditions: Is the device stationary or portable? What are the chances of shock or vibration? Are there any temperature or environmental concerns? Who is the target user and how much dexterity can they be assumed to have? How important is it to find an economical solution? We offer program testing and documentation for each phase of design and production to meet your stringent quality requirements. Progress reports, prototypes, and design testing are all crucial in fulfilling this pledge of excellence

We have recently completed a study of medical device recalls by the FDA, and have published the results here.
