Introducing AcuPoints 5 for Windows

AcuPoints 5.1 - Brief Summary of Features

AcuPoints is an all-in-one program which addresses the needs of Acupuncture Professionals, Alternative Medicine Practitioners, as well as Students of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Due to many requests we have created a version of AcuPoints for those who do not have or want to use a mobile device or phone version of this software. This allows many opportunities to break away from the limited interfaces and resources of those types of devices. This software will run on your Windows 7, Vista, XP, etc. desktop as a stand-alone version of the product.

AcuPoints includes a lot of features and functionality, here is a short breakdown:

  • 401 Acupuncture Point locations (traditional and extra points)
  • Over 50 TCM Diagnosis / Diseases (see below for a complete listing)
  • Multi-Search, a multi-keyword searching engine that accepts up to 3 different key phrases / words to search for throughout your Location or Diagnosis data. Ex. "headache" AND "night sweats" AND "pale tongue"
  • Smart-Search allows easier searching by just highlighting words or phrases in your data and pressing CTRL+F (Search), this will automatically run a search and display any matching results. No typing needed.
  • Completely redesigned user interface. Allows resizing and recall of nearly every window size and position
  • Multiple font sizes to choose from
  • Built-in data Backup and Restore functionality
  • Integrated and user-editable acupuncture point metadata such as Pinyin / English name and point Attributes (ex. Front-Mu, Crossing Point) for each point
  • Ability to compare up to 3 different acupuncture points simultaneously. Compare their location, notes, and attributes / metadata (ex. Ghost Point, Back-Shu Point)
  • Includes detailed Images of points and key anatomical landmarks and references for all 14 main meridians
  • Includes images for body measurement and references for the front, side, and back-of-the-body perspectives
  • Special points: Entry, Exit, Horary, Luo, Source, Xi-Cleft, Lower He-Sea, Tonification, Sedation, Well, Spring, Stream, River and He-Sea points for each meridian as well as the Organ / Meridian active time and the currently active meridian based off the the current time
  • Needle Size, Gauge and Handle Color chart
  • The Influential, Command and Confluent Points
  • The Front Mu and Back Shu Points along with their associated vertebral locations
  • 4 Point Needle technique calculation for any meridian
  • Acupuncture Treatment Protocols: this feature allows you to create, modify, delete, and save custom Acupuncture point protocols for your reference. You can quickly add points to your protocol right from the Location view. After your custom treatment is created you can choose to apply: Tonification, Sedation, and/or Moxa to any listed points as well as specify: Left side, Right side and/or Bilateral treatment. Then you can add a Comment / Description for your protocol and save it. You can even click on a point in your protocol and AcuPoints will display that point location and any associated Clinic Notes. How's that for easy! You can even share your protocols with other users of AcuPoints. Here are a few ways you can use this new AcuTx feature:
    • Create AcuTx protocols for certain conditions and save them by condition name: ex. "Common Cold", "Gastritis", "Influenza"
    • Create AcuTx protocols based on Journal Articles, Conferences, Colleague's: ex. "Dr. Ni's Headache Treatment"
    • Record Acupuncture treatments for your patients: ex. "Bob Jones - 11/15/04"
    • ...There are infinite possibilities.
  • New to 5.1:
    • Go to Point: Immediately jump to a point by typing it in. Ex GV 12 or Yuyao
    • Ability to add Custom Points or Text to your Treatment Protocols. Ex. if you wanted to add ear points into your protocol you add Custom Point text like Ear Shenmen and it will display along with your other treatment points.
    • Ability to Print your Treatment Protocols
    • Added Instant-Search feature to quickly locate any custom text and highlight it within your Acupuncture notes. You can choose up to three keywords or phrases to search for or just use the defaults. Quickly seach for and highlight in your notes: Contraindications, Cautions, Needling Methods, etc.
