Kinetron the micro energy company

Although human energy is one of the oldest energy sources in the world to operate machinery, there is an enormous lack of data on the (im)possibilities of the human body and appropriate energy converters. On the other hand, the decreasing power consumption of portable consumer electronics and the consumer perception of batteries ("environmental hazardous") combined with a growing environmental awareness, offers possibilities for the introduction of human powered energy systems in (new) products.
Human powered energy systems in consumer products is part of DfS (Design for Sustainability).
Kinetron uses active and passive input of human muscles, converting mechanical energy into electricity, within the power range of 1µW to 100 Watt.
