Pulse shape and pulse force are difficult to detect in pulse taking study. But the application of visualized technology extends the space acquisition of pulse taking information, and it is possible to realize the objective detection of pulse shape and pulse force. Rational research thoughts and strategies could be informed by combining image information and other data, and it is a necessary method in implementing the objective detection of pulse.

Key words: pulse presentations, visualization, detection methods
