Flexible and biocompatible high-performance solid-state micro-battery for implantable orthodontic system

There is an increasing demand for advanced healthcare electronics. That can be powered by physically flexible, biocompatible and high performance energy storage devices. However, existing technologies do not allow a combination of all favorable attributes in a single system. Now Muhammad Hussain and co-workers from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia show a physically compliant lithium ion micro-battery with an unprecedented high volumetric energy after cycling 120 times. They further integrate the battery module in a 3D printed encapsulation with near-infrared LEDs to demonstrate a smart dental brace. The present orthodontic system may be used as a personalized healthcare device that serves in faster bone regeneration and enhanced enamel healthcare protection with cost benefits.
