Abstract

In order to realize more advanced and less invasive medical treatment, a variety of micro medical diagnostic devices have been studied. These devices have functions of diagnosis, clinical treatment and data transmission, all of which require effective power supply. This paper reports the gastric-fluid-utilizing micro battery (GMB) applicable for micro medical devices utilized in digestive organs, such as swallowable endoscopes. GMB utlizes Platinum and Zinc as the positive and negative electrodes, respectively, and the gastric fluid as the electrolyte. GMB successfully generated 0.34 mW (0.26 V, 1.3 mA) with 200 ȍ external load. Power supply to a telemetric system was successfully demonstrated.
