School of Chinese Medicine promotes smart living in today’s world with Chinese medicines

中醫藥學院參與創新嘉年華 展示中醫藥智慧與現代都市生活

The School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) is staging an exhibition at InnoCarnival 2016 focusing on the theme of “Live Smart in the Modern World with Chinese Medicine Wisdom”. At the exhibition, which is organised by the Innovation and Technology Commission at the Science Park in Shatin, the School seeks to educate the public on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle in today’s world with the benefit of Chinese medicines.

Through the display of information, books and commonly used Chinese medicines, the School is introducing to the public different ways of maintaining good health with the use of Chinese medicines. These methods include having an appropriate diet, adapting to seasonal changes, understanding acupuncture points and regulating the body’s constitution. Several innovative research projects initiated by SCM were also introduced at the exhibition.

This year, SCM specially designed a mobile app for participants to obtain instant information about the 10 local cultural attractions featuring Chinese medicines. A kiosk with background on the attractions was set up for the participants to photograph. In addition, the School provided interactive edutainment activities, such as a tai chi somatosensory game, data bases and a game-based exercise about Chinese medicines, plus a multimedia human acupoint model. All these features were designed to enable visitors to acquire a rich and fascinating experience of Chinese medicines.

This is the sixth consecutive year in which SCM has been supported by the Innovation and Technology Fund to organise the exhibition, which continues until Sunday (6 November). The exhibition also received sponsorship from Beijing Tong Ren Tang Chinese Medicine Co for the fourth consecutive year.

中醫藥學院今年再度參加由創新科技署在沙田科學園舉行的創新科技嘉年華2016,以「中醫藥智慧與現代都市生活」為展覽主題,教導市民運用中醫藥智慧實踐健康的生活方式。

學院通過展板與陳列中醫藥科普書籍和常用中藥材,介紹中醫藥養生資訊,包括飲食養生、季節養生、穴位養生、運動養生,亦介紹學院的一些中醫藥創新科研項目。

學院今年更特别設計了「香港中醫藥文化十景」手機應用程式,讓參加者可利用程式獲取香港中醫藥文化十景的資訊,同場並設置十景拍照亭供參加者拍照留念。另外,學院亦透過電腦科技提供教育與娛樂並重的活動,包括太極體感遊戲、中藥資料庫、趣味練習和電子人體模型穴位介紹,讓市民有豐富多彩的中醫藥體驗。

今年是學院連續第六年獲得創新及科技基金資助參展,亦是連續第四年獲北京同仁堂國藥有限公司贊助參展。展期至本周日(11月6日)。
