Here at Hermen Health, we provide state of the art diagnostic equipment. The Insight Subluxation Station is the only technology of its kind certified by the NASA Space Foundation. Our Space Foundation certified Insight Technology establishes a reliable, scientifically valid, quantitative, multidimensional, representation of your condition – something never before possible. This is significant on many levels. It enables chiropractors to analyze a patient's condition more accurately, communicate findings more effectively– while allowing both the chiropractor and patient to track the effectiveness of treatment.
Thermal technology has been in clinical use for over a century. The first thermal patent for healthcare use was applied for in 1924, by Dossa Evins. Later that year, B.J. Palmer started utilizing thermal technology to measure patients’ response to care. Thermography has long been acknowledged in the scientific community as being an accurate and reproducible technology. In fact, there are over 5000 references to thermography on Medline. The normative study used by the Insight is based on published scientific research done at Johns Hopkins University in 1988, in which a group of neurosurgeons used thermal scanning technology to determine temperature asymmetry protocols and their relationship to sympathetic dysfunction. In the abstract from the article, it states “Thermal values can be used as a standard in the assessment of sympathetic nerve function, and the degree of asymmetry is a quantifiable indicator of dysfunction.”

This analysis is a unique, patent pending sEMG application that only the Insight provides. Of primary importance to the chiropractor is the way muscle energy is being distributed throughout the spine. Patterns can demonstrate ‘efficiency’ or they can exhibit lack thereof. Think of it sort of as the motor systems ‘miles per gallon’ rating. A person’s somatotype or age may affect sEMG amplitude signals. But with the Insight’s breakthrough pattern view, clinical impressions will not be skewed due to these factors. Colors and the shape of the lines serve as visual cues to easily assess the results.
