The design constraints of Implantable Medical Devices (IMD), such as the low energy consumption, impose significant challenges to application developers. Software tools that improve the quality of the source code by means of technical debt management and provide energy consumption estimations are useful to IMD application developers for addressing such challenges. In this work, we demonstrate the effectiveness of tools that manage the technical debt and provide energy consumption estimations applied to an IMD application for seizure detection.
