All over the world, basic research on high-tech acupuncture and integrative laser medicine has been very successfully performed over the last decades, using a broad spectrum of innovative biomedical engineering methods. One of the main present and future goals is to combine basic research on high-tech acupuncture with necessary further experimental and clinical pilot studies for the first time. Acupuncture has been used for medical treatment for thousands of years. Using electro-acupuncture, needle or laser needle stimulation and modern biomedical techniques, it was possible for the first time to quantify changes in biological activities caused by acupuncture. This lecture focuses on the latest innovative aspects that underline the further enhancement and development of high-tech acupuncture. Special emphasis is given to new acupuncture innovations, e.g. teleacupuncture, laser acupuncture, and laser therapy in animal experimental and human clinical studies. Recent investigations concerning bioengineering assessment and modernization of acupuncture based on innovative technology are presented.
