    Abstract

    Abstract: The creation of implantable devices that support the functioning of the body is an important area in the field of medical technology. Many of these devices require a power supply, and it is desirable that such sources work during the entire period of implantation, even in the case of a lifelong implant installation. The published data on energy sources for powering implantable and wearable medical devices is reviewed. A comparative assessment of the characteristics of biofuel cells as the most developed version of an implantable energy source with other renewable sources of electric energy based on thermo-, piezo-, electrostatic (ES), magneto-, and photo-converters is given. Particular attention is paid to the use of implantable devices that can serve as a source of energy for low-power systems: micropumps, pacemakers, neuroimplants, etc.
