At Body In Balance we use the Insight Scanning Technology which allows our Chiropractor’s to communicate our findings more effectively – while allowing both the doctor and patient to track the results of treatment. With the EMG, Thermal Scan and Pulse Wave Profile we regularly measure your progress. s
Static and Dynamic Surface Electromyography (sEMG)
The Insight sEMG technology is similar to the technology used in EKG/heart rate measurement machines. One primary difference is that the Insight sensors are 1,000 times more sensitive, since the paraspinal muscles generate less electrical activity (action potential) than the heart muscle. One of the most exciting technologies in contemporary chiropractic practice, sEMG measures baseline status and changes in the electrical activity of paraspinal muscles.
The Insight NeuralTherm™ Scanner assesses autonomic nervous system function by measuring skin temperature differentials. It uses data published in the Journal of Neurosurgery for normative comparison and reporting. A patented, breakthrough aspect of the Insight’s thermal scanner design is that the sensor array can be adjusted to accommodate the 3 different sized spines (adult, adolescent, infant).
Pulse Wave Profiler (PWP)
The Insight PWP allows us to monitor the autonomic nervous system in new ways by collecting Heart Rate Variability (HRV) data. This is a unique, extremely exciting, and powerful tool for our Chiropractors and their clients. Heart Rate Variability is the beat-to-beat variation in heart rate. This natural rise and fall of heart rate is caused by several physiologic phenomena, including breathing and autonomic nervous system activity.
