The Insight Subluxation Station

The Insight Subluxation StationT is a 5-technology unit that provides a comprehensive picture of your neurospinal health. The tests are painless, non-invasive, scientifically sound and easy to understand.

This remarkable technology enables both chiropractor and patients to track the effectiveness of treatment and it helps patients understand the underlying principles of chiropractic care and the benefits of long term treatment beyond simple symptom relief.

The integrated technology consists of:

Thermal Scanner
The patented InsightT Thermal Scanner assesses autonomic nervous system function by measuring skin temperature differentials. It utilizes data published in the Journal of Neurosurgery for normative comparison and reporting. A patented, breakthrough aspect of the Insight's thermal scanner design is that the sensor array can be adjusted to accommodate the 3 different sized spines (adult, adolescent, infant).
Range of Motion / Inclinometer
The Inclinometer is used to perform accurate spinal range-of-motion (ROM) measurements. ROM measurements are widely employed in chiropractic practice for clinical assessment of spinal dysfunction and impairment rating. This enables doctors performing impairment evaluations to obtain fast, accurate reports.
Algometer
By mapping pressure/pain sensitivity along the spine the Algometer provides accurate information concerning the sensory portion of the nervous system. The doctor applies pressure to tender areas; the Pressure Pain Threshold (PPT) is determined by the amount of force required for the patient to first perceive discomfort. Previously subjective perceptions can now be accurately quantified, mapped and graphically displayed to assess progress throughout a course of care.
Heart Rate Variability / Pulse Wave Profiler
The PWP allows your doctor to monitor the autonomic nervous system in new ways by collecting Heart Rate Variability (HRV) data. This is a unique, extremely exciting, and powerful tool for the chiropractor.

Heart Rate Variability is the beat-to-beat variation in heart rate. This natural rise and fall of heart rate is caused by several physiologic phenomena, including breathing and autonomic nervous system activity.

Published research has demonstrated that chiropractic adjustments have favorable effects on HRV parameters. For the first time, instead of measuring parameters on or around the spine, we are able to directly measure the effect of chiropractic care on the function of a vital organ. This significant "proof point" catalyzes a patient's understanding of the whole body health benefits of chiropractic care.
Surface Electro Myography (sEMG)
One of the most exciting technologies in contemporary chiropractic practice, sEMG measures baseline status and changes in the electrical activity of paraspinal muscles in order to quantify the muscular changes associated with vertebral subluxations.

This makes it a powerful tool for tracking outcome assessment results from chiropractic care. The Insight sEMG technology is similar to the technology used in EKG/heart rate measurement machines. One primary difference is that the Insight sensors are 1,000 times more sensitive, since the paraspinal muscles generate less electrical activity [action potential] than the heart muscle.
