Comprehensive Cross Reference
The traditional acupuncture manikin has several limitations to fulfill the training needs. Thanks to the latest visualization technique, AcuMap is designed to leapfrog current acupuncture training and simulation in its comprehensive and medically accurate mapping of generic human body with several amazing interactive features. Our strict data reconstruction and design methods shape the very foundation to assist acupuncture and dry needling training.
Display the flows of invisible meridians throughout the body for better understanding their functionalities in clinical treatment.
Origin and Path Tracing
Not only trace the pathway and origin of invisible meridians. Users can also discover the intersection among meridians, nerves conduction, circulatory or lymphatic flows.
Comprehensive Cross Reference
Through reconstructing human bodies based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scan and laser scanning, AcuMap brings the very best of human anatomy to complement TCM education and training, and to eliminate the conceptual hurdle in understanding the complexity and mystery of invisible acupuncture meridians relating to anatomical structures.
Our double sided rendering allows you to take a journey inside human body.
Move / Rotate
Use controller to easily move or rotate the virtual body in the confined space.
Scale up / down
Enlarge the virtual body up to 7 times to observe the details of anatomical structures.
Hide the specific structure to observe the inner or the region of interest.
Contrast the specific structure with region of interest and bring out more anatomy information or interactive flows in different systems.
Simulation with Amazing Visualization Tools
Simulate various acupuncture and needling techniques in virtual world. Needles can be placed in multiple acupuncture points or the very same point with different angles and depths to understand various treatment practices.
During each simulation, a real-time depth indicator accompanied by inner eye display window are activated to observe how an actual needle goes through anatomical region of interest associated with acupuncture point and meridian. Users can also apply controller Hide or Highlight feature for additional visualization purposes.
Photograph and export any scene in the virtual world to your computer for future reference and study.
Activate male or female English voice through controller Highlight feature.
Instructor can host an online session for multiple users. As in the virtual space, all participants can always see the real-time instruction from their best angle of view.
