Universal Wireless Charge Station

Inspired by a healthcare device with a 2-hour battery life.

So the wife after surgery has this thing called a wound- vac, whichvis precisely what it sounds like. Where they haven't stitched her closed yet, due to the necessity of allowing the inside to heal up first I guess, she has a small suction hose and a calibrated vacuum cleaner puling 125 mmHg against a sponge nestled in her cut, and the hose and cut sealed off with some very itchy plastic tape. She's vacuum-sealed for freshness, essentially.

This vacuum thing with the hose must be plugged in to the mains most of the time, and into the wife all of the time. Bathroom trips at night thus involve unplugging and carrying the unit along and then fishing for the cord to hook back up, which when you can't bend over, is unhandy.

A bog-standard wireless charging station would be good for this thing and whatever other gadgets could benefit.

       The charging stations are reasonably universal (there are a couple of Standards...) given that the form factor is "flat surface".
What you're looking for is a wound-vac that has wireless charging built in.
