Intelligent Meridian Analysis

Welcome to AcuGraph 4!

I’m incredibly excited to finally reveal to you the next revolution in Digital Meridian Imaging--but first please indulge me a brief moment of introspection.

As the original designer of the AcuGraph system, I’ve had a front-row seat to watch AcuGraph develop from its very humble beginnings to become the premiere, market-leading meridian assessment tool that it is today. Little did I know when I started this journey in 2002 just how far it would lead, nor how many lives it would change.

In 2002, AcuGraph featured just one graph type and 2 treatment recommendations. No herbs, no PIE score, no reference section, no screening mode. Indeed, all it could really do was measure points and produce a graph. And yet even that limited ability immediately leapfrogged the market and put AcuGraph solidly in the lead.

Now, 3 versions later, AcuGraph has technology and capabilities I only dreamed of back then. We’ve spent the last 8 years relentlessly improving, researching, and refining the AcuGraph system, and along the way, over 2,000 of you have joined us for the journey.

I’m deeply humbled by the confidence you’ve placed in me, my team, and our products. I’m grateful for the opportunity to touch lives every day through the work you do. Most of all, I thank you for your suggestions, support, and for making this journey possible.

We’ve spent over 2 years preparing AcuGraph 4 to exceed all your expectations and continue making a real difference in your practice and in the lives of your patients. We’re very pleased with the results, and hope you will be too.

And so it is with a mixture of pride, excitement and gratitude, that I welcome you to the next revolution in Intelligent Meridian Analysis. Thank you for being here.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. Adrian Larsen
