Acupuncture Software

Advantages & FAQ:

For the very first time, this acupuncture software product can help the therapist or practitioner diagnose the patient.

ACE asks the therapist to mark the patient’s symptoms and displays the diagnosis and the most appropriate treatment using graphs. These graphs represent the distribution of the frequency of points, points combinations, formulas and herbs, that can be considered as optional treatments for a specific patient. ACE does so by analyzing the syndromes that were identified during the diagnosis.
 

Consultant and Friend:
This acupuncture software guides the therapist through the diagnosis by asking a series of Yes/No questions. By doing that, it can accurately diagnose the patient, and help select the most appropriate treatment for the patient.

Refreshment of memory during clinical work:
During the process of the diagnosis and the selection of the appropriate treatment, the therapist can refresh his/her memory, and browse detailed information regarding each syndrome, herb, formula, acupuncture point, etc.


Brainstorming:
During the process of the diagnosis, the therapist is linked to additional symptoms that should be considered, since the patient might suffer from them as well. This feature, which can be described as artificial intelligence, is the benefit of clever crosschecking and the creation of relevant subsets.

Vast Chinese Medicine database suitable for clinical work:
Many books about plants, acupuncture or auriculotherapy have been published lately, but they tend to concentrate only on one of these topics. ACE has an interdisciplinary approach: it offers a library of all the branches of Chinese Medicine: acupuncture, auriculotherapy, Western differentiation, Chinese plants, Chinese formulas, Chinese nutrition and dietary recommendations, syndromes, etc.

For the first time: Point Combinations with explanations:
The acupuncture software and books products specify point combinations for treatment of various problems, but the logic behind the use of each point in the combination is not explained. This often results in the therapist’s inability to find and apply the most appropriate combination.

ACE presents hundreds of combinations of acupuncture points that are related to thousands of symptoms and functions. Every point combination includes a descriptive text column, with extensive information regarding the combination’s principles, and the logic behind each of the points.


The use of Tongue and Pulse diagnosis:
ACE offers sophisticated tongue and pulse filters. The therapist can narrow down the list of optional formulas by selecting from the list of possible tongue and pulse characteristics that might describe the patient’s condition. Additionally, it is possible to sharpen the diagnosis by selecting the syndromes the patient suffers from.

Auriculotherapy:
Many books use unclear two-dimensional drawings in order to display ear points. This is one of the disadvantages of paper, from which these books are made. Ace displays the points using high-resolution images that express the depth of each point, as well as its relation to its neighboring points.

The therapists that practice auriculotherapy professionally are aware of the fact that there are minor differences between the reference books, regarding the location of the points. ACE displays the location of the points according to three of the leading reference books, and concludes by determining the most effective location.

Herbology:
ACE comprises a very extensive database that includes hundreds of plants and formulas with explanatory text, functions, symptoms, contradictions and dosages. These formulas and plants are related to thousands of symptoms and functions. It is possible to navigate from the “Hair Loss” symptom to the appropriate formula for treatment. Each formula is displayed alongside its plants, and every click on a plant opens a screen with information regarding that plant. This way, the therapist can double-check that the formula is, indeed, suitable for the patient.

Ordering Formulas from the Pharmacy:
ACE puts an end to the endless handwritten prescriptions of formulas, and can save paper needed for faxing a patient’s formula to the pharmacy. The user can select a formula from the database, modify the formula, and send it to the pharmacy directly from the software.

Contradicting Herbs:
One of the therapist’s greatest fears is the prescription of a plant that contradicts another, or cannot be used combined with other plants.

ACE solves this problem. When a plant that contradicts another plant is added to a formula, an alert pops up and informs the user about the contradiction between the two plants. The alert specifies the contradicting plants’ names.


For the first time: Chinese Dietary Recommendations:
ACE features a practical list of recommended and unrecommended foods for balancing of the 80 Chinese syndromes specified in the software. This information can help create a dietary recommendation for balancing the patient.
 

Forty Books:
ACE is an extraordinary combination of various traditional and modern knowledge sources. It is based on forty leading acupuncture and herbology books, which are widely accepted and established by academic institutions and senior therapists. ACE users enjoy the benefit of high accessibility to the extensive database, and quicker reference, in comparison with the use of any of these books.

Practical:
ACE is designed to answer the need for immediate accessibility to the information. It also filters the information remarkably well, in order to establish the appropriate acupuncture and herbal treatment.
