Cupping Assistant
Cupping Assistant

Cupping therapy is a common self-treatment method in China. But with little medical knowledge and practice, most patients cannot accurately find the acupoints, therefore the treatment effect may be weakened and the treatment may be delayed.
Cupping Assistant is a scanning and projecting device helping patients to quickly and accurately find the acupoints. By scanning the body, Cupping Assistant captures the relevant data of scanned bones and muscles, and then projects the exact position of acupoints in the scanned area on the body. It’s helpful for patients to treat diseases with the cupping therapy.
