High-Tech Acupuncture and Integrative Laser Medicine 2014

Description

Acupuncture has been used for medical treatment for thousands of years. A large number of empirical data are available, but the technical quantification of effects was not possible till now. Using electroacupuncture, needle, or laser stimulation and modern biomedical techniques, it was possible for the first time to quantify changes in biological activities caused by acupuncture.

This annual special issue focuses on the latest innovative aspects that underline the further enhancement and development of acupuncture. Special emphasis is given to new methodological and technical investigations, for example, results obtained from all kinds of acupuncture innovations (e.g., teleacupuncture) and integrative laser medicine.

We welcome papers reporting the results of “high-tech acupuncture” and those exploring laser acupuncture and integrative laser medicine in general. Studies concerning bioengineering assessment of acupuncture based on modern technology are especially welcome.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Modernization of acupuncture (evidence-based medicine and integrative laser medicine)
  • High-tech acupuncture
  • Development of innovative acupuncture stimulation methods (needle, laser, and electroacupuncture)
  • Methods for the quantification of peripheral and central effects of acupuncture
  • Scientific evaluation of complementary medical methods (acupuncture, acupressure, moxibustion, and laser therapy)
  • Computer-controlled acupuncture
  • Teleacupuncture
  • Laser needle acupuncture
  • Red and infrared laser stimulation
  • Violet laser acupuncture
  • Biomedical assessment of acupuncture
