Chiropractic Leadership Alliance Awarded Space Foundation Certification For
The Insight Subluxation StationTM.

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 to helpidentify 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.



The InsightTM uses technology developed for NASA to measure the effects of space on the spines of space shuttle astronauts. CLA continued the development of the system into the commercially available model available for chiropractic care and has been marketing the technology since 1988. The system measures skin temperature differentials and the sensitivity of paraspinal tissues and assesses range-of-motion, heart rate variability, and the amount of tension of paraspinal muscle activity to create the visual images used by chiropractors and their patients.



We are extremely excited to have been awarded the Space Foundation's certification, states CLA Chief Executive Officer Dr. Patrick Gentempo. Increasing the credibility of chiropractic practice with a technology relevant to today's world will help bring better health to millions of people worldwide.



CLA is pleased to be on the cutting edge of emerging technology, said Dr. Christopher Kent, CLA Co-founder. We are committed to providing chiropractors and their patients with scientifically sound technology. This will lead to improved clinical outcomes.



Since the dawn of the space era, the world's best engineers at NASA have been developing advanced technologies that fuel America's efforts in space and also result in a number of earthly applications. The Space Certification Program, managed by the Space Foundation, provides official recognition for qualified products and services incorporating those space technologies.

Testimonials

  • "My son was experiencing handwriting problems at school and the occupational therapist was not able to diagnose them. After his first adjustment, he woke the next morning much cheerier, telling me he slept "awesome." The school therapist called that afternoon to say there were no tremors in his handwriting that day. He looks forward to each appointment. Dr. Greg is fabulous!" (results after 1 adjustment)"
