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.
