In order to quantify the manipulation process of acupuncture, in this article, a piezoelectric glove based wearable stress sensing system is presented. Served as the sensitive element with small volume and high tensile resistance, PVDF greatly meet the need of quantitative analysis. Through piezoelectric force sensing glove, the system is capable of detecting both perpendicular stress as well as shear stress. Besides, key parameters including peak stress at needle are detected and extracted, potentially allowing for a higher learning efficiency hence advancing the development of acupuncture.
