CAIRDAC Autonomous Leadless Pacemaker powered by heart beats

Smart-MEMPHIS has proven, in vitro, the feasibility of a leadless pacemaker powered by the energy harvested from heart beats. A bulk-MEMS piezoelectric energy harvester has been designed and a specific industrial process has been developed in order to manufacture harvesters fitting inside a pacemaker capsule of less than 1 cm3 and able to extract energy from the low frequency vibrations of cardiac beats.
