Self-powered Wearable Textiles

Textile batteries that can detect bodily fluids and generate power using them may be a reality. Peter Lillehoj, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan State University, East Lansing

Textile batteries that can detect bodily fluids and generate power using them may be a reality. Peter Lillehoj, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI has received major funding from the United States National Science Foundation for carrying out research in this area.

According to Professor Lillehoj, the textile battery that will be developed will be able to carry out biomolecular detections. The battery will sense bodily fluids such as urine and sweat and these fluids will generate power to operate them.

According to information from National Science Foundation, so far wearable textiles have focused on measuring physiological parameters such as heart rate and the new textile batteries will be able to analyse bodily fluids for transforming health care.
