InSight™ Spinal Scanning System
Spinal evaluation technology, known as the InSight(TM) Spinal Scanning System was developed for astronauts and is now endorsed and used by chiropractic practitioners, worldwide. This validated, evidence-based technology is used to identify unmanaged stress patterns in the muscles, joints and nerves of the spinal core. Surface electromyographic (sEMG) sensors can be placed along the spine to detect how gravity, here on earth, uses precious neuro-muscular energy.
Chiropractors use the Insight(TM) to help identify where subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, can be creating unhealthy muscle activity. Subluxations disturb nerve activity, causing an abnormal amount of electrical flow to the muscles. This can be associated with other developing health challenges as persistent stress can alter nervous system control . The Insight Subluxation Station calculates these imbalances within the spine which assists chiropractors when they adjust their patients. The Insight allows for increased accuracy in diagnosis and improved treatment outcomes.
The Insight Subluxation Station combines diagnostic technologies, certified by the Space Foundation, to measure the gravitational effect 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 includes measurements of skin temperature differentials, the sensitivity of paraspinal tissues, analysis of spinal range-of-motion, and heart rate variability to create visual reports that chiropractors can use to diagnose their patients and help bring better health to millions of people worldwide.
The Chiropractic Leadership Alliance is a 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.
