" Meridians network of connected points across the anatomy which affects a specific organ or other part of the body. " Acupoints are locations of the body that are focus of the acupressure and acupuncture treatment. " Control unit fills the air into the outer glow and using this air pressure inner wearable unit presses the exact Acupoints on the palm. " Some of the novel features of the wearable unit (interior) of a proposed device includes " Inner Spiked Layer " Customizable design " Flexible material " 80% acupoints covered Need and Demand : " The population is aging and as we age we need more health care. Acupressure therapy is an oldest way of treatment to cure some diseases. " It is also called as an alternate medicine. It needs only trained professional who is having the knowledge of accupoints. " In these days it is difficult to find the acupressure profession also it time consuming to visit the clinic and get therapy. " Our developed device is capable to do the acupressure therapy on anyone and this a general solution mainly for stress and pain relief (as applying acupressure on a whole does not have any harmful or significant side-effects as per the medical professional).The drawbacks of conventional ice packs are that they are inconvenient to use, less effective and non-recyclable. As the ice melts, water starts to drip, drenching the patient s clothes thus causing discomfort. " Further, ice packs are less effective once the ice is exposed to room temperature or applied against the skin. The ice starts to melt faster, as these ice packs are not insulated enough to keep them functional for a long period of time. " Under normal conditions, ice begins to melt when the surrounding temperature rises above its freezing point, 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius). Apart from the above, several other factors can also cause ice to begin melting, even at very low temperatures. Adding salt or even sugar causes normally stable ice to begin melting, either until the added substance is sufficiently diluted or the surrounding temperature lowers to the freezing point of the new solution. Consequentially, conventional ice packs are less productive and non-recyclable. " To overcome the shortcomings of the conventional ice packs given in India s hospitals, there is the need of an ice pack, which is not only cost effective, but also more efficient, recyclable and safe for use. Future Developments " Optimizing the size and performance of the device. " Size adjustable glove.
