Computerized Chiropractic Adjusting Technology
Impulse iQ: Experience the latest chiropractic technology
Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to chiropractors to assist in delivering chiropractic adjustments. Impulse iQ Adjusting Instrument is a patented and FDA registered device that was developed to provide gentle and precise computer-aided chiropractic adjustments to relieve pain and restore function. The instrument has a high-tech sensor that provides information from your body’s response to chiropractic adjustments to a micro-computer inside to give the doctor feedback about your results. During the adjustment, the instrument measures how much the spine moves and how long it takes for the spine to rebound. This allows the doctor to deliver a custom-tailored chiropractic adjustment that is precisely controlled in force and speed. Impulse iQ adjustment feels like a light tapping sensation (can be a single thrust or multiple thrusts depending on the patient’s condition) on the area that is being treated. In most cases the treatment is painless and after the adjustment, many patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility.
Benefits of Impulse iQ adjustment:
Computerized adjustment: High-tech computerized adjustments with Impulse iQ precisely measure how the spine is moving during the treatment so that just the right amount of care can be provided.
Extreme Speed: Impulse iQ is 100 times faster than traditional manual chiropractic adjustments. Because force equals mass times acceleration (F=ma), increasing the speed of adjustments with a chiropractic adjusting instrument accounts for using a significantly decreased mass while achieving similar forces to traditional manual chiropractic adjustments. The slower speeds of manual adjustment can cause the whole spine to move more as opposed to just the motion segment that the chiropractor is targeting. The faster speed of a chiropractic adjusting instrument allows the adjustment to be delivered faster than the patient’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment.
Controlled Gentle-Force: Impulse iQ has different force settings for different parts of the body and to treat patients of all ages. The controlled low force thrust makes treatments comfortable.
Research: Years of research have gone into the development of the Impulse iQ Adjusting Instrument to create gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments that are safe and effective for patients of all ages.
1. Embedded within Impulse iQ is a motion sensor and micro-computer.
2. As the adjustment thrust is delivered, the precise amount of spinal motion
3. and the frequency (or speed) of motion are determined accurately in real-time.
4. As the spine rebounds from each thrust, information is fed into the micro-computer.
5. Auto-sense technology then sets the frequency of subsequent thrusts tailored to you.
6. The instrument stops automatically when the adjustment is accomplished.
