Students attending Cleveland University-Kansas City's (CUKC) College of Chiropractic are now using an innovative piece of equipment that is redefining the landscape of chiropractic education. Called "Force Sensing Table Technology™" (FSTT), it is an adjusting table that electronically monitors the amount of force applied by the user during a chiropractic adjustment. The data is captured by the table and displayed instantaneously on monitors as a force-time curve. The information can then be used as a teaching aid to instruct student interns on the proper amount of force needed for each manual adjustment.
When you become a part of the Cleveland University-Kansas City community, you’ll quickly find that the experience is a good blend of education and family. We’re a tight-knit group of people who are all striving for the same goal – the betterment of health and lives. That warmth and commitment is exuded throughout campus. People know you. Including our president who can put a name to a face of nearly all of Cleveland's 500 students.
Students on our campus come from across the street and the other side of the world. While the mean age of our students is 24, they represent many age groups and backgrounds, and all share a desire to help people maintain good health and active lives.Virtual Tour
