The source of electricity is placed on clothing near the limbs (arms or legs). It consists of a freely moving cylindrical permanent magnet and an induction coil made of thin varnish-insulated wire profiled into a suitable coil.
The movement of the limb causes the movement of the permanent magnet inside the cylindrical cavity around which the coil is located, where a voltage appears that can be used to power devices on clothing or the body (wrist watches, different types of sensors, charging batteries, lamps, or mobile phones, etc.).
