Purdue University Energy Harvesting Nanogenerators

Energy Harvesting Nanogenerators Offer New Option For Monitoring Health

Wearable medical devices offer a convenient means of monitoring many physiological features of our body. These devices, which include insulin pumps, continuous heart rate monitors, and neural stimulators, need an electric power source to function. Now, a team of scientists at Purdue University has developed self-powered wearable triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)-based contact […]

Prevent implant hacking

Keep Your Body and Implants Safe from Hackers with this Wireless Body Network

If a hacker wants to, he or she can hack your body-worn devices such as pacemakers and insulin pumps just by intercepting wireless signals, and put your life in danger. This hasn’t happened in real life yet, but researchers at Purdue University, who have been studying this problem intensely, have come up with a way […]
