Conformal piezoelectric energy harvesting and storage from motions of the heart, lung, and diaphragm.

Abstract

Here, we report advanced materials and devices that enable high-efficiency mechanical-to-electrical energy conversion from the natural contractile and relaxation motions of the heart, lung, and diaphragm, demonstrated in several different animal models, each of which has organs with sizes that approach human scales. A cointegrated collection of such energy… (More)
