When optimally utilized, a new generation of processors, (e.g., ARM Cortex-M) can operate on minimal power while still providing high performance, making them ideal for use in medical devices that require high computing power while consuming minimal energy.

Recent advances in power management software, such as dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) and power-aware scheduling algorithms, make it possible to optimize power usage across different components of the device, thereby extending battery life and reducing power consumption.
