The patent application (Publication Number: US20240033532A1) describes an electrical component for an implantable medical device. The component includes an outer shell with connection devices on each side for establishing an electrical connection to other components outside the shell. The component can be configured to assume different states where one connection device is active while the other is deactivated, allowing for flexibility in establishing connections as needed.

Furthermore, the patent application details additional features such as through-openings forming the connection devices, a closure element for deactivating the connection devices, and a guide element for passing a connection line through the devices. The component is designed with symmetry in mind, with the side faces and connection devices being symmetric relative to a plane of symmetry. The application also discusses the use of multiple components in an implantable medical device assembly, forming an energy storage device, with the side faces aligned along a common plane for efficient integration. These innovations aim to enhance the functionality and versatility of implantable medical devices while ensuring ease of assembly and connection management.
