Printed, Flexible Energy Storage And Its Application In Healthcare Patches: The Patch4Life Project
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
Estrel Hall A
15:40 - 16:00
Over the last 9 months we have been developing a wearable patch for monitoring elderly patients. The full patch is designed on a flex PCB and is powered by a combination of energy scavenging and printed energy storage. The presentation will summarise the main results of the project and overview the application of flexible power in healthcare applications.

Company Profile (Zinergy UK Ltd)
Zinergy UK Ltd is a start-up founded in 2015 with headquarters in Cambridge. Zinergy is emerging as a company developing state of the art, thin film printed batteries that are mechanically flexible. Our technology is principally based around zinc electrodes and aims to compete in cost and performance to fill a niche of truly thin batteries below 0.5mm. The application of these batteries complements printed electronics devices in various markets, including active RFID tags, smart cards, medical patches, etc. The rechargeable version extends this to energy scavenging systems such as solar cells and wearables.
