Title
(EN) ENERGY HARVESTING MATTRESS WITH THERMOELECTRIC FABRIC
(FR) MATELAS DE COLLECTE D'ÉNERGIE AVEC TISSU THERMOÉLECTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
Energy harvesting mattresses, systems, and methods of cooling mattresses are disclosed herein. In some aspects, the energy harvesting mattress can include a body support having a proximal surface that is configured to support a sleeper and a flexible thermoelectric fabric comprising at least one p-type layer coupled to at least one n-type layer to provide at least one p-n junction. The flexible thermoelectric fabric can be configured to be in thermal communication with the proximal surface of the body support such that when the proximal surface is heated the flexible thermoelectric fabric generates a current.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des matelas de collecte d'énergie, des systèmes et des procédés de refroidissement de matelas. Sous certains aspects, le matelas de collecte d'énergie peut comprendre un support corporel comportant une surface proximale qui est configurée pour supporter une personne couchée et un tissu thermoélectrique flexible comprenant au moins une couche de type p couplée à au moins une couche de type n afin de former au moins une jonction p-n. Le tissu thermoélectrique flexible peut être configuré pour être en communication thermique avec la surface proximale du support corporel de telle sorte que, lorsque la surface proximale est chauffée, le tissu thermoélectrique flexible génère un courant.
