Abstract

Using the new trend of energy harvesting, an envisioned electromagnetic power transducer that uses human gait to produce electrical energy is presented as a solution to energize biomedical devices. Regardless of the walking speed, starting at 0.7 Hz, it is possible to store a total energy of 2.2 mJ, using two 1000 µF capacitors as energy storage elements. Afterwards, this energy becomes available to the telemetric system through an efficient power management module. Since the end application, an implantable biomedical telemetric system, needs a total of 360 µJ to operate, the here presented power transducer is well suited for implant power needs.
