Reading Time: 1 minuteChandler, Ariz.– Neuromechanical Innovations announces the release of their latest advancement in chiropractic instrument adjusting technology, the Impulse iQ Adjusting Instrument. While conducting original research on the Impulse Adjusting Instrument, important discoveries were made that identified a target frequency that maximized vertebral motion repeated impulsive thrusts. Derived from this work, the Impulse Adjusting Instrument was modified adding an accelerometer (motion sensor) to its nosepiece and reprogramming its internal computer algorithm to give birth to Impulse IQ. Impulse iQ’s predecessor, Impulse is currently in use in over five thousand chiropractic offices – in every state throughout the US and in 30 Countries world-wide.
Impulse iQ was designed to monitor the patient’s biomechanical response during the adjustment and subsequently vary the frequency of adjustments in real-time based on the patient’s response. To assist the clinician in determining when the adjustment has been accomplished, “maximized mobility” is sensed within the patented Impulse IQ computer algorithm by examining the peak-to-peak acceleration responses of the spine during the adjustment. With this technology, the spine’s mobility can be examined and stopped when the motion has been maximized, preventing so-called “over-adjusting.” Because these features make Impulse Adjusting Instrument intelligent, iQ was added to the name. It’s intelli-adjust sensing ability is termed auto-sense technology.
