Meridian Scanner / Smart Health Scanner

Meridian Scanner
Meridian Scanner

Meridian Scanner is a innovative foot acupuncture points scanner and offers a brand new product experience.

The concept of acupuncture points in traditional Chinese medicine enables us to observe the health status of organs corresponding to the acupuncture points. It can be of great assistance in modern preventive medicine.

With advances in technology, the techniques of acupuncture-point detection have gradually developed well. Piezoelectric materials are also widely used. Therefore, the combination of both characteristics resulted in “the Meridian Scanner.” Now people have easy access to health detection and daily health care at home.
