Abstract Scope Nanogenerator is a device, capable of harvesting any mechanical energy existing in our living environment and converting it to corresponding electrical energy. This study reports the fabrication of a flexible and biocompatible nanogenerator, capable of harvesting mechanical energy from body motions. The fabricated nanogenerator is essentially a piezoelectric polymeric sheet. Adequate mechanical and enhanced piezoelectric properties of the nanogenerator were imparted through a combination of the optimized polymer composition, second phase reinforcements and dedicated curing technique. The polymeric nanogenerator was fabricated using various techniques, such as the electrical poling of piezoelectric polymer, electrospinning, and reinforcement of polymer with various carbon nanofillers, such as carbon nanotubes and graphene nanoplatelets. Results demonstrate that the as-fabricated nanogenerator is capable of converting mechanical energy generated from body motions to electrical energy. Hence, it can be used to power implantable biomedical devices such as foot drop implants, cochlear implants, etc.
