Abstract

Comparison of the electrical properties of yintang acupoints by using bi-digital o-ring test and electrical measurement on young soccer players were evaluated and compared in this study. Twenty-three right-handed young soccer players (age group 15-19) were included in thiS study. Skin resistance was measured with an ohmmeter and Bi-Digital O-Ring Test successively, after the players has looked at the drawing of a "smiling face" for 5 seconds from a distance of 40 cm at the eye level. Immediately afterwards they were shown the drawing of a "crying face". We then proceeded to measure the same variables, using the Bi-Digital O-Ring test. The statistics obtained thereby were subjected to Pearson correlation coefficient and paired t-test. Results of measurement of both method were similar and meaningfull.
