"The only Technology of its kind Certified by The Space Foundation"
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.(January 1, 2006) – Spinal care technology developed for astronauts is now available for better chiropractic care. The Space Foundation, co-founded by NASA, announced today that the Chiropractic Leadership Alliance (CLA) has been awarded exclusive certification for the Insight Subluxation StationTM as a Certified Space Technology (tm). The InsightTM technology 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 InsightTM to measure the effects of subluxations, and tohelpidentify misalignments of the spine that cause nerve interference. Spinal misalignment disturbs the muscle’s regular nerve function, causing an abnormal amount of electrical flow to the muscles and creating other health problems. The Insight Subluxation StationTM measures the electrical flow and charts it using graphics that show the spine and specify precisely when chiropractors should adjust their patients, allowing for increased accuracy in diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes.
"The Space Foundation is pleased to certify the Insight Subluxation StationTM," said Kevin Cook, director of brand management for the Space Foundation. "The Chiropractic Leadership Alliance promotes better health by equipping the professional with the best technology for patient assessment."
Insight Subluxation StationTM (InsightTM) is also being utilized on world class athletes, both professional and amateur.One of the more famous amateur athletes, Dan O’Brien, Olympic Gold medalist, credits winning the gold medal to his chiropractic care routine for the 1998 Olympic Games. Today, chiropractors for athletic organizations such as the Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts, Detroit Lions, San Diego Padres, and Houston Rockets provide a higher level of care for their players using the InsightTM to identify nerve interference and provide the necessary care that improves performance.
"The InsightTM is a great communication tool that helps us understand the complexity and muscle function of nerve interference players develop and re-develop over time due to the nature of the game" said Dr. Douglas C. Miller, Chiropractor to the Baltimore Ravens. "It’s a great visual tool for me and the players – plus they love seeing their scans".
