We modelled the power output of a small hydroelectric turbine placed within the descending aorta of a human and plotted this against the age of the individual. We found that the optimal age for energy generation with this model ranges from roughly 62 to 74 years old for a power output range of approximately 1.2 W to 2.9 W, although we suggest that less dangerous methods of power generation are preferable.
