Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Holst Centre and imec for Its Path Breaking Wearable Energy Harvester Technology
Date:2/2/2010

LONDON, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent research on the wearable energy harvesters market, Frost & Sullivan presents Holst Centre and imec with the 2009 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation for its wearable electrocardiograph energy harvesting solution, which provides tens of microwatts of energy per square centimetre for modules with 3x4 cm2 dimensions. Due to its convenience of use, self powering, and low maintenance, this has opened the way for a wide range of commercial and personal solutions. The European open-innovation R&D centres Holst Centre and imec achieved this result within their R&D program on micropower generation and storage.

Recently, Holst Centre and imec developed miniaturized health monitoring systems, which consume heat naturally dissipated from the human body in order to operate. While wearable devices that operate using the body's heat have been in use for several years, small thermoelectric energy generators have so far proven their capability to power only small personal devices such as watches without needing an external power source. The unique device developed by Holst Centre and imec is the result of clever design of a thermal harvester, matched specifically to a human body, as well as a large reduction of the power consumption of the electronics. The thermal harvester is made of a thermoelectric material, in this case bismuth telluride, that converts human body heat into electric current. Once this device is placed close to the body, it generates electricity that is further accumulated in an energy storage system. The electricity capacitor subsequently powers the a
