Worth 1000 Words? 5/5 (34)

I’m sure you’ve heard a picture is worth a thousand words.

And I’m sure you know why. Even a lengthy description can’t convey the same information as precisely and quickly as a single picture. Imagine trying to describe a sunset, a sports play, your home or a new baby using only words. It’s quite a challenge.

But beyond simply conveying images, pictures may actually be a more efficient way of thinking and problem solving as well. Case in point: Author Clive Thompson describes how he solved the question of what computer to purchase by drawing a series of pictures conveying features and benefits of each choice. When the pictures were drawn, the choice became obvious.

Pictures also help clarify the operation of complex systems. Every machine starts with a blueprint design; every electronic circuit starts with a schematic diagram. Whether it’s for engineering, manufacturing or building, the best and most effective way to understand the interactions of a complex system is with a visual representation.

I think you “see” where I’m going with this.

By making the meridian system objective and visual, AcuGraph makes you more effective and more efficient. Consider the following:

Marketing: AcuGraph’s visual technology instantly convinces potential patients that you understand what is wrong and how to fix it–because you can show them.

Problem Solving: When you’re dealing with a tough case, there’s just no substitute for the ability to “See the Chi” in each meridian channel while you consider the interactions of this beautifully complex and interconnected system.

Trending: Would you rather comb through detailed notes of every visit or look at a simple chart to determine how much your patient has improved under your care? And which would your patient rather do?

The examples continue, but you get the picture…so to speak.

The point to remember is this: AcuGraph isn’t just useful for demonstration. It’s also a powerful problem-solving tool.

For a few more thoughts on the power of visual problem solving, I really recommend you read the following article:
