AMI (Motoyama)

AMI (Motoyama)


The AMI works by monitoring the electrical conductivity and capacity at specific acupoints at the tip of fingers and toes (called Sei point, or Jing/Well points). After years of research, Dr. Motoyama was able to show that there is a close correlation between the electrical conductivity of meridians and the flow of Ki (or Chi) in the meridians. The basic research Dr. Motoyama did to support his claim about the AMI can be found in his book "Measurement of Ki Energy Diagnoses & Treatment: Treatment Principle of Oriental Medicine from an Electrophysiological Viewpoints" published by Human Science Press in 1977.

The AMI model has been renewed with a high efficiency, more compact size and low price. In combination with a notebook laptop personal computer, it is easy to carry and the measured data can be analyzed using other software. It can be effectively used in teaching exercises in fitness clubs and yoga classes as well as more conventional use in hospitals and acupuncture clinics.

Features of the Newest Model:

Small and Light: 55 mm(height) x 175 mm (width) x 290 mm (length), approx. 900g. It is used in conjunction with the internationally standardized IBM compatible computer (Windows 95/98).

As the measured data is stored in a form which can be directly read into spread sheet software (ex. Excel), users can develop their own analytical research.

The BP resolution has been increased 8 times, resulting in the possibility of more detailed analyses. (10A in the newest mode, in comparison with 80A in the former model.)

It's AC adapter can receive AC voltage between 100 and 230 Volts
