This paper investigates different approaches for supplying power to implantable hearing systems via energy harvesting. Because of the specific nature of the problem, only energy harvesting in the region of the human head is considered. Upper bounds as well as more conservative estimations for harvesting mechanical, thermal, and electromagnetic energy are presented and discussed.
