Newswise: Harvesting Energy from the Human Knee

Article ID: 715950

Harvesting Energy from the Human Knee

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Imagine powering your devices by walking. With technology recently developed by researchers at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and described in Applied Physics Letters, that possibility might not be far out of reach. An energy harvester is attached to the wearer’s knee and can generate 1.6 microwatts of power while the wearer walks without any increase in effort. The energy is enough to power small electronics like health monitoring equipment and GPS devices.
