New Program by SIGMA Instrument Methods Promises Universal Appeal for Doctors Using Any Manual Or Chiropractic Instrument Adjusting Approach or Philosophy
Pittsburgh PA, November 28, 2011: Sigma Instruments has announced it is positioning its new Ultralign Series computer-assisted adjusting system as a TOOL rather than a TECHNIQUE, that can be integrated into any Chiropractic Philosophy or treatment approach. "Right now, I don't think anyone in the Chiropractic Profession wants or needs another new system telling us where and how to adjust the spine," says Dr. David Salanki, President of SIGMA Instrument Methods Inc., the new support and training arm of Pittsburgh-based Sigma Instruments, Inc. "The fact that we already have dozens of assessment and treatment theories, does nothing to help the profession or unify the Chiropractic message. In contrast to all other chiropractic instrument approaches, Sigma doesn't sponsor any specified recipe for treatment but consider the instrument as an extension of the hands of the chiropractor. It provides information that we could never have access to in the past such as tissue durometer, frequency and motoricity patterns. It then allows the doctor to now deliver extremely precise computer controlled manipulative forces to targeted tissues, hundreds of times faster than we could ever imagine before with any manual approach."
The Sigma Instrument is both a sophisticated tissue sensor and a full spectrum computer-controlled force generator capable of delivering therapeutic chiropractic adjustments across an entire range of frequencies, (0.1HZ to 12Hz) and through an entire range of forces (10 -35 lbs. per square inch).
Sigma engineers believe the instrument has applications with practically every chiropractic technique in existence today, and welcomes research initiatives with experts from all leading chiropractic techniques to explore these possibilities.
SIGMA Instrument Methods, through CE-Approved training courses, and a monthly subscription web-based support network, "SIGMA Success Network", will provide core training and comprehensive support tools for doctors using Sigma technology. Some of the many features offered will be online forums, steps for practice implementation, downloadable SIGMA forms & practice tools, access to relevant research pertaining to instrument adjusting through an online research library, practitioner search function as well as extensive information pertaining to specialized protocols and clinical applications of the instrument.
In addition, SIGMA Instrument Methods is working with leading industry partners including Back Talk Systems, ACOM, Health Visions, Spectrio, Printscape, Goosen Print Design, and Practice Development Institute to provide member doctors, additional turnkey solutions to support marketing and successful clinical best practices.
Sigma Instruments, the inventor and manufacturer of a large number of computer-assisted adjusting systems including Sigma Ultralign, Spineliner, and ProAdjuster, is the established leader in Chiropractic computer-instrument treatment technologies. Currently, Sigma has thousands of adjusting instruments in use in chiropractic offices, hospitals, and medical clinics worldwide. The Sigma instrument utilizes a patented piezoelectric sensor that measures the reflective force of a computer-controlled impulse. Vertebral segmental function and resonance are calculated by each waveform generated by the tester head. Specialized software stores and displays diagnostic findings. In the treatment mode, the instrument utilizes a comfortable high velocity low amplitude periodic driving force to induce resonance in the vertebra and surrounding tissues. With this technology, musculoskeletal conditions can be managed through specific manipulative techniques assisted by the instrument in a precise and reproducible manner.
Doctors using or considering using the Sigma technology can now gain immediate online access to the Sigma Success Network. Sigma Instrument Methods provides this at regular cost of $99 per month, but is offering this service on a time-limited introductory basis at $47 per month for a one-year term.
