It is made up of a metal human body model for acupuncture and a color chart of meridian nerve to be used for education and clinical practice.

The chart helps put on a scientific basis 14 meridian lines and 361 points of acupuncture applicable to the acupuncture treatment, pursuant to Kyongrak theory, as it specifically marks on the basis of the modern medical principles points of movement, electromyography, electroencephalography, spinal cord, meridian line and nerve bushes, etc.
