The ArthroStim® instrument allows the doctor tremendous control over all adjustment variables. The ArthroStim® (Hoffman Kit Model) allows you to vary the intensity of the adjustment from 1 to 12 (low beta somatomotor rhythm ) high velocity-low amplitude thrusts per second. The power of the thrusts can be changed from almost nothing (suitable even for infants) to 40 pounds of thrusting force.
The ArthroStim® instrument features a spring cushioned ‘floating stylus’ design that enables a practitioner to instantly increase and decrease the thrusting force simply by increasing or decreasing pressure against the body. This permits the practitioner to utilize the ArthroStim® as an extension of their own hands.
The spring cushioning produces a comfortable ‘end-feel’ to the thrust and it minimizes the forces returning to the practitioner. This makes the ArthroStim® much easier on the doctor’s hands and body than other devices often costing hundreds (or thousands) of dollars more.
The rapid thrust and unique recoil produced by the ArthroStim® activates the patient’s proprioceptors and mechanoreceptors without recruiting the nocioceptors (pain receptors), providing the comfort today’s patient demands.
Patients typically notice a positive difference with the first adjustment.
