Resonant Link and Cirtec Medical have entered into a strategic partnership to serve developers of implantable medical devices.
The two medtech suppliers said today that the partnership will combine Resonant Link’s next-generation wireless power technology with Cirtec Medical’s product design, development and manufacturing expertise to “offer medical device makers the best technology, fully integrated components, and faster time to market.”
The companies have already been working with each other for years, said Resonant Link CEO Grayson Zulauf.
“This partnership is really an extension of the close collaboration, transparency, and mutual respect we already have,” he said in a news release. “Cirtec is known for providing advanced medical device technologies, engineering, and contract manufacturing services, and we are thrilled to add our wireless power capabilities to their suite of off-the-shelf and custom medical device solutions.”
Cirtec Medical CEO Brian Highley said of the partnership: “In developing their wireless power systems, Resonant Link has done what no other company has; making power and energy for medical devices an opportunity for differentiation and miniaturization. From passive implants to miniature sensors, we are excited to integrate Resonant Link technology to redefine what’s possible for our medical device partners.”
Resonant Link and Cirtec have recently entered into other partnerships in the medtech space. Resonant Link in July announced a collaboration with Resonetics on integrated power components for medical implants. In August, Cirtec said it finalized its deal to manufacture millimeter-scale, solid-state Stereax batteries for Ilika.
Resonant Link is headquartered in South Burlington, Vermont, with anchor offices in Boston and Zurich, Switzerland. The company’s medical device applications include neurostimulators, pumps, pacemakers and other active implantable devices.
