Power wireless sensors and other low-power mobile electronic
devices utilizing body heat as a constantly available power source.
TEGwear™ technology is a unique
thermoelectric energy harvesting technology designed to power body-worn
electronic devices. Integrated into wearable form factors, such
as wristbands or clothing, TEGwear™ absorbs heat from the
body, which is converted into electrical energy that serves as an
always-available renewable power source.
Similar to sunlight exciting electrons
in a solar cell, body-heat absorbed by TEGwear™ technology
excites electrons and optimizes this energy for body-worn medical,
fitness, and safety related electronics.
The result of decades of development
from Thermo Life® Energy Corporation and Perpetua R&D, this
unique flexible thermoelectric material is being incorporated into
strategic partner products.
