Abstract

Research on the new technology of the potential of human body part to provide mechanical energy to convert to electrical energy has been rapidly performed by some researchers from well known universities. This paper described the research that focus only on toe as a source of mechanical energy and by using piezoelectric sensor as a mean of converting mechanical energy into electrical energy to power electronic devices. In order to complete the project, the data has been taken from a subject that performed a stationary run on the force sensor with piezoelectric sensor attached to the toe. Voltage output from piezoelectric sensor is in alternating form is then connected to a non-adaptive harvesting circuit
