Technological advances in low power wearable electronics and energy optimization techniques
make motion energy harvesting a viable energy source. However, it has not been
widely adopted due to bulky energy harvester designs that are uncomfortable to wear. This
work addresses this problem by analyzing the feasibility of powering low wearable power
devices using piezoelectric energy generated at the human knee. We start with a novel
mathematical model for estimating the power generated from human knee joint movements.
