Sigma presents next generation of adjusting instruments
July 19, 2010 — Pittsburgh, PA – John Crunick, CEO presented Sigma’s next generation of computerized adjusting instruments at the First Annual State of the Art Computerized Instrument Adjusting Symposia.
Over 100 chiropractors from North America and Japan participated in an intensive two-day, hands-on training program to discuss the latest research findings and to learn recent advances in computer assisted instrument adjusting techniques. In addition, the symposia served as a springboard to formerly introduce Sigma Instruments to the Chiropractic profession.
Sigma Instruments has been the leader in the development and manufacturing of computerized adjusting instruments for the Chiropractic profession since 1996, when Tom Becse, John Crunick, and Lou Laskey introduced and patented the S.M.A.R.T. Adjuster, ProAdjuster and the VF Adjuster. John Crunick demonstrated Sigma’s next generation of instruments, which has been named the Align Series. The Ultralign, which replaces the ProAdjuster, uses a full SQL server database with a Microsoft 7 operating system, and provides the user with advanced analytic and treatment protocols, reported Mr. Laskey. These advances will provide chiropractors with the most advanced computerized adjusting instrument available, which will enhance the delivery of patient care.
More importantly, Mr. Crunick reported the new instruments would provide the practitioner with the tools necessary to provide evidenced based treatment outcomes that are EMR compatible. In order to maintain the highest quality of manufacturing and to foster the highest level of ethics, Sigma plans to market direct to the Chiropractor.
Mr. Crunick, also assured participants that Sigma Instruments will service anyone who has purchased an instrument manufactured by Sigma, whether directly from Sigma or from any former distributors.
Cutting edge science and research sponsored by Sigma was the theme of the symposia. Studies demonstrated the impact of low frequency harmonic percussion and treatment outcomes, which provides a foundation for the chiropractic profession. Masa Yamasaki, DC and his colleagues from Japan presented over 8 years of data and research, which advances the scope of chiropractic medicine. Dr Yamasaki demonstrated techniques using the Ultalign Instrument that results in dramatic improvements in physical posture, in as little as five minutes of therapy. Studies also demonstrated new techniques with the Ultralign allowing dramatic improvements in facial architecture symmetry and appearance. Participants at the symposia described the technique as a needleless, instant facial.
