Wearable devices are typically constrained by battery life. This episode explores balancing the need for continuous monitoring with power efficiency, which becomes especially important for devices that require prolonged usage, such as continuous glucose monitors or cardiac monitoring devices.

On this episode of Medical Design Briefs’ Podcast, Arvind Kamath, executive vice president of technology development for Ensurge, takes a look at powering wearables and how to balance battery life with power efficiency.
