Abstract

It is mostly important in acupuncture to become highly skilled by training with repeated practice. However, such practice can hardly be done on a real human body, which may always be accompanied with pain and misery. In this study, a computer training system with force feedback for acupuncture was proposed. A human acu-points model with acu-point name, position, meridians, stinging techniques and healing functions was created within the computer, and devices with force feedback functions for skill training were used in the system. A trainee gets acupuncture experience not only by visual information, but also from sensing the force information with a true-false judgment of his movement being real-timely given during the exercise.
