Piezoelectric Energy Harvester for IOT Application

It is now possible to minimise the size and power requirements of electronics devices in the fields of wireless sensors and implantable medical devices (IMDs) thanks to the significant improvement in microelectronic VLSI technology. These IMDs, such as cardioverter defibrillators, cardiac pacemakers, artificial retinas, brain, and bone stimulators, sensors, and cochlear implants, among others, can be placed in human bodies for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. The various implantable devices can be used as diagnostic tools to track blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature for a variety of medical conditions, and they can also help with the management of diseases like diabetes (e.g., stimulation of brain and muscles). The pacemaker helps treat irregular heartbeats brought on by sick sinus syndrome or a blocked heart.
