June 13, 2019 -- Logan will be unveiling a new
Simulation Lab featuring a Force Sensing Technology Table, which incorporates technology to aid in development of motor
skills used to deliver spinal manipulation.
Associate Professor Daryl Ridgeway said the
force sensing technology provides instantaneous data on loads transmitted by
the manual adjustment, and offers students immediate objective feedback about
their performance, through a display of their force-time profile.
skills of the student can then be directly quantified and compared, to expert
force-time profiles and the students can then use this objective feedback to
model the desired behavior, rather than relying on observation and intrinsic
feedback alone,” he said.
table was developed by Logan graduate John Triano, DC (1973), PhD and
researchers at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Dr. Triano is a leading
expert in spine
care research and chiropractic procedures. He serves as co-director of Conservative
Medicine and Director for the Chiropractic Division at The Texas Back
Institute, a multidisciplinary spine facility.
ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 19 in Room
106 of the Science & Research Building. All are welcome to attend.
