Palpation or sphygmopalpation is an essential diagnostic method Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for diagnosing diseases and guiding treatments. To exploring the scientific basis of TCM sphygmopalpation, we have recently developed artificial intelligence-based pulse sensing platform plus a palpation robotic hand (AIPSP) to recognise common pulse patterns diagnosed by experienced CMP.
The objectives include:
The student will be expected to participate in a multidisciplinary research project to conduct the study on artificial intelligence recognitions for TCM pulse patterns and its correlations with cardiovascular functions and body constitution. He/she will have opportunity to work with clinicians and biomedical engineers. Having obtained the qualifications of a Chinese medicinal licence or a western medicine practice licence would be an advantage.
