Contour's advanced primary lithium carbon fluoride (CFx) batteries are distinguished by innovative chemistry that more than doubles the energy density available in existing batteries. This cuts down on the weight and size of cells and battery packs substantially, paving the way for use in both existing and next-generation medical applications. The robust design of Contour's advanced CFx batteries will readily withstand demanding environments, such as those encountered during medical sterilization. In addition, the long service and shelf lives of these advanced CFx batteries ensure uninterrupted performance for essential monitoring, drug delivery, defibrillation and other quality of life applications. Contour's advanced CFx batteries, which can also be customized to achieve an optimal balance of energy and power densities based on the specific requirements of individual applications, are available in multiple form factors to accommodate the widest array of medical applications possible.
- Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs): Systems that automatically diagnose the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient require battery systems with extraordinarily high energy density and a high pulse current. Batteries supporting these systems must also meet strict safety standards by avoiding the use of any toxic materials. Contour's advanced CFx batteries deliver the safety and high power requirements demanded by this crucial, life-saving system.
- Glucose Monitoring Systems: Accurately determining the approximate concentration of glucose in the blood of people with diabetes or hypoglycemia in 5 seconds or less remains a challenge. With Contour's advanced CFx primary battery, future systems with faster diagnostics are on the horizon. These batteries, available in multiple form factors, combine long service life with the high energy density and pulse power needed to perform tests quickly without compromising accuracy.
- Bone Growth Stimulators: Ultrasonic osteogenesis and electrical stimulators used to accelerate the healing of fresh fractures and fusions rely on high energy density battery systems that also meet stringent safety requirements. Contour's advanced CFx batteries offer unmatched power and energy densities in coin cell form factors.
