Earl says, "As a speaker, I use eTouch extensively in my talks for illustrating key points and capabilities."

eTouch was used during the last talks of Dr. John Thie for recording the results of his balances he was giving on-stage at TFHKA annual conferences. In 2005, Dr. Thie's presentation was recorded and the video is available online via YouTube (below).
Video of Dr. Thie's Presentation

These last sessions of Dr. Thie are still in Earl's eTouch records. The results of this balance shown in the YouTube video are included in a sample record with each copy of eTouch. This allows speakers to show the video of Dr. Thie and then show the results in eTouch where they can be explained and elaborated upon.

This is a powerful connection for speakers around the world that are sharing Touch for Health with the world.

Combining touch with an advanced touchscreen display was a real treat to test. eTouch for Health performed flawlessly on this advanced computer / touchscreen system. Simply touching a button caused eTouch to quickly and seamlessly go to where ever was chosen. This technology (with lower costing products) could be installed in clinics where results could easily be recorded with simple touches on the screen.
Students and clients like seeing the results as they are recorded. We have noticed they become more involved and understanding of what we are demonstrating and doing.
