Abstract

An acupuncture training system was proposed in this study paying special attention to the fine movements. The measurement, quantitative analysis and index of evaluation of the operation force in insertion and quick sting operations were carried out. Because the acupuncture is an experiment-based technique so there has been no quantitative attempt nor for training index in the traditional training style. In this study, we have made equipment to measure the operation force of doctors. The force values of experienced doctor and trainees were recorded at the same time, and the results were compared with each other to obtain a quantitative index for better training effect. Our study showed that training can be done with specific targeting values through quantification of the fine movements in acupuncture techniques, and the effect can be evaluated by a real-time true-false judgment from the training system.
