TAML's author Tianjian Lu and his team won the State Second-Class Natural Sciences Award of 2015 for their research "Bio-thermo-mechano-electrical behavior of skin tissue and tooth". This award, which is regarded as one of the highest awards in China is to recognize scientists and to honor major breakthroughs in fundamental research.
One of the related researches by Tianjian Lu titled "Effect of viscoelasticity on skin pain sensation" (Theor. Appl. Mech. Lett. 2015, 5(6), 222-226) was lately published in TAML. This paper aims to understand the pain sensation in traditional Chinese cupping treatment, the effect of viscoelasticity of skin on pain sensation was analyzed using the pain sensation mode.
