Abstract: Head acupoint massage products imitate human massage techniques, and act on acupuncture points on the head by means of inflating, squeezing, vibrating, and heating to promote blood circulation in the head, relieve fatigue and prevent diseases. The fit of such products to the head greatly affects the effectiveness and comfort of the massage. In order to design head acupoint massage products suitable for Chinese head shape and improve the adaptation performance of product massage structure and head acupoints, this paper studies a 3D digital head-shaped platform with complete head acupoint distribution and conducts dynamic analysis of fitting fit. Firstly, the 5th, 50th and 95th percentile 3D digital head shapes of 5 types of Chinese standard head shapes were reconstructed. Secondly, 3D distribution models of 7 meridians and 78 acupoints were established on the head shape according to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine. Finally, a head-mounted massage product module was analyzed the adaptability of acupoint matching. The problems of a head acupoint massage product were analyzed by virtual wearing in the 3D digital head-shaped platform, and the head massage product was optimized. The results showed that the inner surface of the optimized product could fit well with the head, and the acupoint massage position was accurate.
