Spinal care technology developed for astronauts is now available for better chiropractic care here on Earth. The Insight Subluxation Station is a neurospinal screening and evaluation system that uses surface electromyography (SEMG) technology originally designed to measure changes in the spinal muscles of astronauts.
Chiropractors use the Insight to help identify subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, by measuring muscle activity. Subluxations disturb the muscles regular nerve function, causing an abnormal amount of electrical flow to the muscle as well as other health challenges. The Insight Subluxation Station measures the electrical flow and charts it using graphics that show the spine and specify precisely how chiropractors should adjust their patients. Insight allows for increased accuracy in diagnosis and improved treatment.
The Insight uses technology developed for NASA to measure the effects of space on the spines of space shuttle astronauts. The Chiropractic Leadership Alliance (CLA) continued the development of the system into the commercially available model. The system measures skin temperature differentials and the sensitivity of paraspinal tissues and assesses range-of-motion, and heart rate variability to create visual images chiropractors can use to diagnose their patients and help bring better health to millions of people worldwide.
The Chiropractic Leadership Alliance is a highly successful, privately held company with more than 8,000 chiropractic clients on six continents. CLA’s mission is to help create worldwide wellness by improving the practice and perception of chiropractic everywhere.”
