Tiny Device Harvests Energy from the Heart

Apr 25, 2019   |   Design News

"A team of collaborators from Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth and UT Health San Antonio is the latest to come up with technology for this purpose with the development of a dime-sized invention that can convert the kinetic energy of the heart to electricity, said Lin Dong, a Dartmouth research associate who worked on the project.

"'The energy-harvesting device could harness the energy from the heart towards conversion into an electrical power, which will be used for charging the implantable biomedical devices, such as pacemakers,' she told Design News."
