Abstract: A new self-powered sensor with wireless connectivity is presented. The system is powered by piezoelectric energy harvesting from human motion. It can be implemented for example into orthoses, medical walking aids, shoes or prostheses. Force sensors measure the weight bearing on a lower limb. The collected data is processed and transmitted to a smartphone or computer using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). On the receiving device, the data is analysed and visualized and can provide information for patients and physicians to support healing processes. Initial tests show that the harvested energy is sufficient for a stable operation of the embedded system.
