HDO_Admin | September 4th, 2009

We designed our system based on highperformance lowcost hardware Photonik laser system consisting of the laser driver and the diodepumped, solidstate lasers 532 nm green laser Catweazle LC II galvanometer, laser scanning system designed for use with an external laser source with up to 1W output power in the wavelength range of to nm Uniblitz LS Series shutter to control the laser beam from breaking through and unnecessarily exposing the patient. National Instruments products were ideal for our application development because NI products include both the data acquisition and image processing capabilities essential for our laser treatment procedure.

More recently, laser acupuncture using therapeutic lasers to stimulate meridian points has proven effective. The centers of the two matched markers form the reference line for the initial meridian point coordinate system. Each meridian point reference position is determined according to traditional Chinese medicine TCM acupuncture and the userdefined reference point. The basic unit of measurement in acupuncture is known as cun.

IMAQ Vision helps the system achieve the edge detecting, pattern matching, and image overlaying processes. Developing our automated laser treatment system required two major steps the first being identifying the meridian points and compensates for body movement.

And although the current system has been used for back treatment, the system could target other areas of the body, such as the chest and limbs, in the future. Lasers have replaced needles in TCM acupuncture for many years. During treatment, while the laser controller loops continuously through all selected meridian points, the acupuncturist can vary the duration and length of time the beam is incident on the back to achieve optimized laser therapy. This step required both the image acquisition and database retrieval techniques. The system then automatically performs pattern match with the other marker.

The software uses the patternmatching and overlaymatching algorithm to briefly detect the location of the two markers and retrieve the latest reference point update. When the system performs image overlay to annotate the video image with predefined meridian points. If the selected ailment does not meet preloaded user requirements, test cases and warning messages, defined by colored markers and neck region edge detection, stop system progression. Thereafter, the galvanometer retrieves these updated data and continues with the treatment process. The system then automatically performs pattern match with the other marker.

HDO_Admin | July 20th, 2009

The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of laser acupuncture in this type of headache. The outcome variables were headache intensity VAS, duration of attacks, and number of days with headache per month, by daily diary, assessed monthly to three months after treatment. RESULTS There were significant differences between groups Points were irradiated for seconds, and the intensity was 1. 3J approximately 13Jcm2. Tension headache is among the commonest forms. The placebo group was treated in similar way except that the output power of the equipment was set to zero.

RESULTS There were significant differences between groups Points were irradiated for seconds, and the intensity was 1. 3J approximately 13Jcm2. METHODS Fifty patients with chronic tensiontype headache were randomly allocated to treatment or placebo groups. Patients in the treatment group received low energy laser acupuncture to LU7, LI4, GB14, and GB20 bilaterally. Acupuncture is the widely practised nonmedicinal treatment for headaches. Tension headache is among the commonest forms. OBJECTIVE Headache affects the quality of life for many people throughout the world.
