The threat of cardiovascular disease become higher among the elderly of Taiwan. According to statistics in 2013, cardiovascular disease contained three among the top ten leading causes of death. There were considerable numbers of acute patients onsetting without being noticed at time, to cause delaying in medical treatment and leading to irreparable consequences. Therefore, health monitoring would be a significant key in homecare. We hope that measuring microcirculation with near-infrared spectroscopy can be a novel index of physiological information. The method can not only be used in homecare but also in Intensive Care Unit. These novel index of physiological information make health care workers realize more to status of patients. In this research, we used functional physiological intervention method to monitor microcirculation with near-infrared spectroscopy, and discovered that microcirculation would be different because of innate gender and acquired physiologic even healthy people. Also, we found that neuromuscular electrical stimulation can make microcirculation better when electrical stimulation is not high enough to muscle contraction. In the future, we want to expand our research to collect more data of different ages or clinical application, such as peripheral arterial occlusive disease and diabetes mellitus, for more accurate data interpretation.
