Battery that dissolves in the body could power embedded health sensors

Battery that dissolves in the body could power embedded health sensors | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Embeddable sensors that can track a person's vitals could eventually be a boon for healthcare, but something equally small, portable, and safe is going to have to power those sensors.

 

Researchers from the University of Illinois may have an answer: batteries that slowly decompose in the body. Using magnesium and either iron, tungsten, or molybdenum, the researchers were able to build a small battery that delivered a constant output for at least 24 hours. Operating voltage varies by element, ranging from approximately 0.45V to 0.75V, and by stacking cells in series, the researchers say that they were able to create a battery strong enough to power a conventional LED.


Sitting in a salt-water solution at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, it took a four-cell battery 11 days to break apart; the temperature was then increased to 185 degrees, almost fully dissolving the battery after another eight days. That battery weighed about 3.5 grams, with cells measuring 3 cm by 1.3 cm and placed 4mm apart. The researchers say the materials are both biocompatible and benign to the environment.
