Summary Energy harvesting from human body motions is of the main interest for consumer electronic devices, wireless sensors, military gadgets, and implantable medical devices. Such harvesters offer environmentally friendly incentives as well as perpetual availability of portable electronics. In this paper, we present a user friendly energy harvesting belt that is able to harvest energy from human's abdominal motions. The concept of the system was introduced by authors [1]. The prototype of the belt is presented here as a proof of concept for this idea. Moreover, further development of the system is discussed in terms of the harvesting circuit.
