dc.description.abstractTaichi is an ancient Chinese martial art that attracted much interest due to its many health benefits. Many scientific studies have confirmed the effectiveness of Taichi as a therapy for the following illness: diabetes, high blood pressure, migraines, heart disease, arthritis, etc. As it takes a long time to learn even the basic form of Taichi, bedridden patients cannot benefit from Taichi training. Therefore, it will be useful to build a device that can bring the Taichi benefits to the bedridden. The device is an Electro-Taichi stimulator that stimulates biocurrent flows according to the movements of Taichi-24 form. While the implementation hardware is developed by another project, the main objective of this project is to develop an algorithm that mimics the movements of Taichi-24 form. The author uses an animation software Blender to animate the sequence of Taichi movements to validate the correctness of the algorithm. The output includes image and video files for the Taichi sequence of movements. Besides acquiring animation skills, the author has the opportunity to learn Taichi-24 form and experiences the well-known health benefits.en_US
