Student working on a research project.

Harvesting Energy From Blood Pressure For Small Sensors/devices

This state-of-the-art research project investigates the conversion of mechanical energy of blood flow in blood vessels to useful electric energy via the piezoelectric effect. The energy thereby obtained will be useful for powering small sensors. For detailed information see this article -
