Contour Energy Targets Use In Medical Devices

Azusa-based Contour Energy Systems, the venture backed developers of advanced battery systems, said today that it is targeting the medical device market with its products. The firm said its Li/CFx battery cells are particularly well-suited for medical applications, due to a flat discharge profile, low internal resistance, and light weight. The firm said it hopes that manufacturers of drug infusion pumps, neurostimulators, pacemakers, bone-growth stimulators, glucose monitors, defibrillators and other devices will consider its products; the firm did not say if it has yet sold its batteries into the market.
