Harvest Energy, Gym Equipment, Working Out, Cable and Pulley Machine


The energy crisis in today’s world and the growing impact of electricity production on the environment is a topic of grave importance. There is an urgent need to find alternate ways of producing electricity and finding ways to harvest energy from renewable sources of energy. Many innovative concepts are being worked on currently to achieve this. One such idea is to recover the energy expended by humans while working out in a gym. There are many commercial products that generate electricity from machines like elliptical trainers and gym cycles, etc., but none for the cable and pulley machine. This project aims to create a mechanism to harvest energy from any cable and pulley machine in a gym. The mechanism will be an easy retrofit onto current equipment eliminating the need to purchase a new machine altogether.
