Piezoelectric fibers composite materials can be effectively used as electro-mechanical transducers to harvest power from human body motion thanks to high flexibility and improved reliability compared to traditional piezoceramic sheets. In this work, the motions of elbow and knee joints are replicated with test bench at variable amplitudes and angular… CONTINUE READING
