ABSTRACT
The article reports that medical researchers are working on pacemakers and other medical apparatus that would run off the energy produced by the human body as opposed to batteries. Most of the experimental implantable biofuel cells built so far use enzymes to catalyse the reactions. An alternative solution being explored is using a disposable battery attached to a renewable patch.
