Here’s a popular saying about the meridian system in traditional Chinese medicine ( TCM): “If free flow, there’s no suffering; if there’s suffering, there’s no free flow.”
Intra-traditional medicine is commonly used to encourage circulation, particularly in the case of moderate loss of local blood microcirculation. For healthy individuals, meridian therapy encourages local metabolism and wellbeing recovery.
Cupping entails applying heat stimulation to body acupoints to facilitate unblocked meridians and qi and blood flow, thus eradicating illness and improving health.
The oldest known cupping technique was fire cupping, where heat was used to induce adsorption of cups placed on the skin for localised hyperemia or swelling.
This may lead to capillary breakdown, resulting in the loss of red blood cells and hemolysis, and constant relaxation and body health protection.
TCM maintains that cupping therapy improves blood supply and prevents blood stasis. This form of therapy ‘s advantages include non-invasiveness and operational ease.
Therefore, a form of physical therapy has long been used in healthcare. Cupping is an effective treatment.
It has broad and deep ramifications and has been practised continuously for 1,000 years. Yes, cupping can become a precious legacy of human civilisation creation. Technology and research should be incorporated into cupping therapy to help and preserve its value. Cupping is an alternative heat-based treatment in TCM.
Duration and temperature can not be adequately controlled during surgery, however, which can cause skin burns. Inconveniences and complications of conventional cupping therapy have limited its use. This dimension of traditional medicine is at risk of being forgotten to future generations, becoming a big concern.
Cupping is a form of thermal stimulation in which a certain degree of heat needs to be obtained and error is not allowed because the procedure would not be suitable for outdoor heat and indoor cold.
Cupping therapy uses various cups. They contain bamboo pots, terrines, glass bowls, bottles with smooth bottlenecks, tea cups, and bamboo cords. In addition to conventional cupping techniques, several new devices have been developed, including glass cups, rubber cups, plastic cups, and suction aspirators.
Glass and plastic cups are most commonly used as replacement cupping materials. Many jars and cups are usually made using translucent acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS); the benefits include compressive power, corrosion resistance and non-toxicity.
Transparent cups allow easy observation of colour changes, blisters and blood blisters on the skin under the cupand help determine the severity of symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, providing a basis for diagnosis
Heat is helpful to the operation of the body, but it can do irreparable harm to the human body unnecessarily or over-used. Heat will enter the skin and increase tissue temperature to 42 ° C, causing cells to die naturally.
Besides temperature , thermal therapy duration is an important factor that can cause thermal damage. Due to the fact that cell tissue can tolerate temperatures of up to 58 ° C for just threeminutes, sustained thermal therapy can destroy the cell membrane’s lipid layer and induce protein changes in cells that can lead to cell coagulation necrosis.
Depending on the depth of body tissue penetration, heat therapy can be classified into superficial heat therapy and deep heat therapy. Penetration depth is less than 1 cm in superficial heat therapy and can reach 3-6 cm in deep heat therapy.
Although technologies using heat in medical treatment are already relatively advanced, recent studies have succeeded in developing medical cupping equipment. During therapy, the amount of heat used to better serve patient needs is dictated largely by the physician’s expertise. This study developed a heat-cutting therapeutic device capable of time and temperature control, an innovative device for product type and basic functions.
The exterior design of the controlling device is illustrated in Figure 1. The appearance is solid andrefined; modern technology is used inside combined with the Bagua and Taiji designs used on the outer casing.I
n Taoism, Bagua and Taiji have many implications and are believed to suppress discomfort and give the patient piece of mind while expelling any discomfort during medical treatment.
A temperature controller and other elements were integrated into the controlling device. With regard to design, the main consideration was given to the efficiencyof the electronic components and dissipation of accumulated heat.The dimensions of the controlling device are 250mm.
The developed controller can easily set heating and temperature values. When the temperature is above or below the set temperature, feedback signals from the temperature sensor device allow adjustments to be made at any time. In the experiment below, Was a second temperature control unit
Cupping is a healthy and easy form of therapy. However, many people buy at-home cups that can lead to burns due to lack of any restrictions in cupping application. Moderncupping mainly switched away from heat and chose to use vacuum cups to improve the consistency of cupping therapy.
Although technologies using heat in medical treatment are already relatively advanced, recent studies on heat transfer in cupping have succeeded in developing medical cupping equipment. During treatment, the amount of heat used to best meet the needs of the patient is determined primarily by the experience of the physician.
The developed device provides traditional medical treatments use electricity with a form of heating that can improve treatment efficiency. Empirical results showed that , despite temperature fluctuations, temperature control achieved stability. The temperatures in each test were within 60-120 seconds
