Title:

Smart Materials for Future Healthcare Wearable Applications

Abstract:

With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and sensor network, the personalized healthcare wearable electronic system possessing multi-modality and multi-functionality has received great attention. However, with the increased demands of wearable devices, traditional power supply from batteries have encountered great challenges. Therefore, it is essential to discover an alternative power source, which is sustainable, pollution-free, highly sustainable to meet up with advanced applications. Nanogenerators (NGs), by converting mechanical energy from the environment into electricity, such as walking, tapping, and breathing, have been proposed as an effective and stable approach for the specific device and system design. In this presentation, we will introduce the progress of applying NGs into current healthcare wearables, including material selection, design principle, and system integration.
