Procedure Kit/Trays, Acupuncture
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard) needed for performing insertion of needles along specific pathways or meridians (i.e., acupuncture procedures). Items in these kits usually include acupuncture needles, a point detector, tweezers, lancets, alcohol swabs, and sharps collectors. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Acupuncture procedure kits and trays are mainly intended for use in the prevention and treatment of pain-related conditions such as arthritis, back, neck, knee and shoulder pains, and carpal tunnel syndrome; they are sometimes used simultaneously with pressure, heat, and/or electric stimulation.
