In this paper, we demonstrate the operation of flexible and highly sensitive MXENE-based capacitive strain sensor fabricated on a paper substrate. The use of common printing paper as a substrate not only makes the fabrication facile and inexpensive but also makes the sensor eco-friendly and biodegradable. The presented sensor has been mounted on the human body to monitor the movements of various joints like the wrist and the elbow. Upon application of strain, a noticeable change of more than 30% in the total capacitance of the sensor is observed. By measuring the change in the capacitance of the sensor, the movements of human joints can be monitored and used for applications like exercise and therapy.
