Traditional Chinese medicine massage for the blind has a history of hundreds of years,and over 17.31 million visually impaired people rely on this for employment. However, during massage training, apprentices face many difficulties due to visual impairment, such as difficulty in memorizing complex acupoints on the human body, and difficulty in memorizing massage techniques for each body part.
M-Shirt is an auxiliary teaching aid designed for visually impaired people in massage vocational training. It converts acupoints and massage manipulation into tactile information, which can improve the learning efficiency of the population.
