(d) Output voltage of the textile-based TENG tested for 1200 s and over 7,200 cycles at the frequency of 6 Hz. (e) Output voltage generated by the textile-based TENG mounted on the insole. The two insets exhibit the shoe to extract biomechanical energy from human footfall. Reproduced with permission from [158]. Copyright Springer Nature, 2019.
