Textile integration of piezoelectric energy harvesting

February 10th, 2017

Breathing is the most consistent source of kinetic energy in the human body, as it produces a large circumferential displacement in the chest, even during sleep. This oscillation is one of few mechanisms in the human body that can also be exploited non-invasively for energy harvesting. The National Science Foundation’s ASSIST (Advanced Self-Powered Systems of […]
