Abstract

In March 11, 2011, worst disaster called Sendai Quake attacked the north east side of Japan. In the disaster area, Tsunami removed the all building, so, we need simple and easy medical equipment. As the portable device, Electric doctor bag has been invented. In the traditional and alternative medicine, a pulse diagnosis is one of the most important diagnostic methods. However, there was no paper in which the medical evidence of a pulse diagnosis was shown. We invented the quantitative diagnosis machine which could carry out a pulse diagnosis scientifically. This machine could perform a pulse diagnosis using three pressure sensors. The pulse diagnosis is reproduced by various pressures being applied to three pressure sensors from external surface. Three experimental series including the experiments using model circulation circuit, an animal experimental series, and a clinical application with pulse diagnosis machine were conducted. Chaos theory was used for the evaluation in the clinical application of the pulse diagnosis machine. At least as for the part, the data which are in agreement with a traditional Chinese medicine by this pulse diagnosis machine are obtained. A part of Chinese medicine may have the scientific basis medically, in future. Scientific evidence may be able to be given to a pulse diagnosis for the first time in the world using invention of this pulse diagnosis machine.
