Most people use hand soap, sanitize their tabletops, vacuum regularly, maybe even eat vitamin C, but how many think about the cleanliness of the air they breath inside their home? Sadly, one of the leading causes of poor health in the United States stems from the dust, bacteria, mold, pollution and allergens trapped in the confined space of homes and office buildings.

As the ever-increasing need for clean air looms, concerned individuals can find a solution at www. amiservices. us, where an arsenal of air purifiers and testing kits can be found.

USC Consulting Group's Chris Saunders Named to Society of Critical Care Medicine Advocacy Committee

USC Consulting Group's Chris Saunders Named to Society of Critical Care Medicine Advocacy Committee

Team to address workforce and reimbursement issues, disaster preparedness.

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 15, 2007

Christopher Saunders, RN, a senior healthcare consultant with Tampa-based USC Consulting Group, LLC (USCCG), has been invited to serve on the Society of Critical Care Medicine's (SCCM) Advocacy Committee for a three-year term.

The SCCM Advocacy Committee is comprised of a number of organization members from the multi-professional team that monitors advocacy issues, consults with the SCCM Council, and works with decision-makers concerning health policy. The Advocacy Committee is an ongoing part of SCCM's commitment to public service and securing the highest quality care for all critically ill patients. 

The Society's Council charged the Advocacy Committee with the task of prioritizing a list of projects and initiatives, which were affirmed in 2006. They include:

Workforce issues: A key policy issue facing critical care is that of the workforce shortage, and the Society has worked consistently to raise awareness and propose solutions -- both independently and in collaboration with others. Reimbursement issues: The Medicare Physician Payment Schedule continues to be a key issue in the health care community, and affects many members of the critical care team. SCCM, working collaboratively with such other medical societies as the American Medical Association, makes every effort to help policy makers understand that appropriate reimbursement for the delivery of critical care is vital to ensuring the availability of trained professionals. Disaster preparedness: Preparing medical facilities and professionals to best manage the effects of natural disasters, terrorist attacks, mass trauma, pandemics and epidemics is a high priority.

Mr. Saunders said of his appointment, "I'm honored and delighted to serve on this committee. As someone who is actively involved in improving healthcare, I recognize the importance of educating hospital executives, policy makers, employers, and the community about critical care medicine and welcome a role in this effort.

"This medical specialty has been recognized as a board certified clinical specialty since 1987, yet only ten percent of hospitals have implemented the physician model, which requires an intensivist to be present in the ICU. Taking care of patients in the ICU with an intensivist-led multi-disciplinary team has proven to reduce patient mortality, decrease complications during an ICU stay, and shorten both ICU and hospital length of stay."

About Christopher Saunders, RN, MHSA

Chris Saunders is a senior healthcare consultant with USC Consulting Group, LLC (USCCG). He has been providing clinical leadership for the firm's healthcare practice since 1997. He also serves as primary nurse care coordinator at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He has 19 years of experience in critical care nursing, intermediate care, surgical step-down and liver transplant settings. During his tenure with USCCG, he has worked with such clients as HCA, St. David's Healthcare, South West Texas Methodist Healthcare System, and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Mr. Saunders holds a BSN from Waynesburg College and an MHSA from the University of St. Francis. His professional credentials include Critical Care Registered Nurse (CCRN), Certified Clinical Transplant Nurse (CCTN), Operational Leaders Certification from Development Dimensions International, and graduation from the Perfecting Patient Care University, the Toyota Production Model in the healthcare setting. He is a member of the Nurse Navigator Fellowship, Pittsburgh Regional Healthcare Initiative and is a member of the Advocacy Committee for the Society of Critical Care Medicine.

About the Society of Critical Care Medicine

The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is the only professional organization devoted exclusively to the advancement of multi-professional critical care medicine through excellence in patient care, education, research, and advocacy.

SCCM has a worldwide membership of more than 13,000 from a diverse group of highly trained professionals including intensivists, critical care nurses, critical care pharmacists/pharmacologists, respiratory therapists, technicians and social workers. The Society was created in 1970 to educate medical professionals and the community about the need for intensivists and critical care practitioners. The organization is headquartered in Des Plaines, IL.

About USC Consulting Group

USC Consulting Group, LLC (www. usccg. com) is an independent management consulting firm headquartered in Tampa, FL, with offices in Chicago, Montreal and Toronto. USCCG helps hospitals adapt as the hospital environment changes by providing the basis for achieving and sustaining new levels of patient safety and satisfaction.

Latest Jackson & Coker Industry Report Spotlights Trends in Surgical Assisting, Art Therapy

Latest Jackson & Coker Industry Report Spotlights Trends in Surgical Assisting, Art Therapy

A recent survey conducted by Jackson Surgical Assistants outlines the appeal of surgical assistance to physicians who seek a change of pace and reduced responsibilities, particularly as they approach the retirement zone.

Alpharetta, GA (Vocus) November 4, 2010

The latest edition of the Jackson & Coker Industry Report (JCIR) highlights two notable trends in the medical profession. A noteworthy trend in hospital staffing concerns the growing interest among surgeons to practice as Surgical First Assistants (SFAs).

“For several decades, Jackson & Coker has placed surgeons in appealing locum tenens and permanent practice opportunities,” mentioned Sandra Garrett, President of Jackson & Coker. “We are pleased to now work closely with our sister company, Jackson Surgical Assistants, to offer surgeons, particularly those in the ‘retirement zone,’ a viable career alternative,” she added.

The JCIR includes a survey recently conducted by Jackson Surgical Assistants (http://www. jacksonsurgicalassistants. com) as well as an interview with their Medical Director, Dr. Sidney Funk, who further explained the appeal of surgical assistance to physicians who seek a change of pace and reduced responsibilities, particularly as they approach the retirement zone. Working as an SFA appeals to different categories of physicians: 
Doctors who want to wind down their career in the face of burdensome management responsibilities, high overhead, and decreasing reimbursements;

Surgeons who want to spend more quality time with their family by achieving a different work/life balance;

Providers who wish to maintain their licensure and certification by continuing to work in the Operating Room in a different role that enables them to mentor younger clinicians and earn a comfortable income, and

Physicians who are recently retired but, because of financial concerns, have chosen to re-enter the medical profession in a less stressful position.

“As the medical community becomes more aware of the benefits of using experienced surgeons as Surgical First Assistants, we can expect more physicians to be attracted to this career option and more medical facilities to incorporate SFAs as part of their staffing model,” remarked Shannon Ross Stahl, Vice President of Sales for Jackson Surgical Assistants.

Another trend in the medical profession involves the use of art therapy as a creative approach for improving clinical outcomes. A Special Report in the JCIR discusses the matter from a number of perspectives:

A brief history of art therapy The educational and credentialing requirements of art therapists Relationship to evidence-based medicine The role of art therapy in contemporary medicine, and Why physicians are increasingly relying on art therapy as an essential component of patient care.

Here is the link to the most recent issue of the Jackson & Coker Industry Report. http://www. jacksoncoker. com/physician-career-resources/newsletters/Monthlymain/Sep/2010.aspx.

About Jackson & Coker

Begun over three decades ago, Jackson & Coker has been a leader in physician recruitment through the placement of physicians in both permanent placement and locum tenens physician jobs. The firm specializes in anesthesiology jobs, CRNA jobs, neurology jobs, psychiatry jobs, surgery jobs, primary care jobs as well as emergency medicine jobs. Headquartered in metro Atlanta, the firm has earned a reputation for providing cost-effective, time-sensitive solutions to both government and commercial health care organizations. The recruitment staff works in two divisions of the company: Retained Search, which places physicians in over 40 medical specialties in permanent staff positions, and locum tenens, a staffing model that recruits medical providers (physicians and CRNAs) for temporary vacancies.

Jackson & Coker has earned a “Gold Seal” designation as a “Certified Health Care Staffing Service” by the Joint Commission and is affiliated with a credentials verification organization (JH CVO) that has received certification by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) in ten out of ten credentialing elements.

Picateers and eScrip Offer Unique Fundraising Alternatives for Back-to-School 2008 : New Partnership Will Introduce Picateers to Thousands of Schools Nationwide

Picateers and eScrip Offer Unique Fundraising Alternatives for Back-to-School 2008 : New Partnership Will Introduce Picateers to Thousands of Schools Nationwide

Back-to-school means “back-to-fundraising” for parents across the country, who spend more than $2 billion each year supporting school fundraising efforts. This year Picateers and eScrip, two innovative school fundraising companies, are joining together to remind schools, PTAs and parents alike that there are better choices for fundraising than silent auctions and bake sales.

SAN MATEO, Calif. (PRWEB) September 9, 2008

-- Picateers is an online portrait company that helps schools run their own picture days and turn them into effective fundraisers. Participating schools find a volunteer photographer to take the pictures, typically trusted parents or faculty members. Picateers takes care of the rest, from providing guidance, online ordering, and step-by-step instructions to delivering the photos.

  With Picateers, schools receive 50 percent of all portrait package sales, which typically translates into thousands of dollars.   -- Electronic Scrip Inc. (eScrip), works with retailers nationwide to help parents contribute a percentage of grocery loyalty cards, credit card, and debit/ATM card purchases to the school, group or organization of choice.   Since its inception, eScrip has helped schools raise more than $180 million. "Picateers and eScrip both leverage parents' existing purchases to raise money for schools. When parents buy school pictures, clothes or even groceries, they're fundraising," said Susan Doherty, co-founder and vice-president of marketing at Picateers. "Our combined efforts will go a long way to help save valuable programs in schools across the country."

As part of the partnership, eScrip will introduce Picateers to more than 45,000 schools across America through its national symposiums and other communications with participating schools.

"Picateers and eScrip help schools raise money easily in a positive and healthy way," said Richard Sutch, Executive Vice President, Marketing of eScrip. "It's important that anyone involved in school fundraising realize that they have options that are safe, easy and it doesn't hurt that they are sugar-free."

Picateers is an innovative online portrait company that enables schools to turn school picture day into a successful fundraiser. With a single Picateers picture day, a typical elementary school can raise about $5,000 – almost half of the average fundraising goal for a year. Funded by Norwest Venture Partners and Storm Ventures and angel investors, the company is headquartered in San Mateo, Calif. Visit www. picateers. com for more information.


Electronic Scrip Inc. (eScrip) is dedicated to establishing relationships between commerce and community to provide resources to organizations that support children. eScrip's board and officers include individuals with diverse backgrounds that include computer technology, banking systems, marketing, accounting, fundraising, and the non-profit sector. Escrip is headquartered in San Mateo, California.

ALL Cholesterol Lowering Drugs are Dangerous

ALL Cholesterol Lowering Drugs are Dangerous

It is a very narrow view to simply focus on the recalled cholesterol-lowering drug Baycol, when all the drugs in that class ('statins') have the potential to do the same thing, since they all act through the same biochemical process.

(PRWEB) August 24, 2001

SCHAUMBURG, ILLINOIS - While the media has been abuzz lately with news of the recall of the cholesterol-lowering medication Baycol (cerivastatin), they are really missing the bigger picture, says a group of leading physicians and health experts.

It is a very narrow view to simply focus on just one of these drugs, when they all have the potential to do the same thing, they maintain.

"All of the popular cholesterol-lowering drugs commonly known as 'statins', can cause the same adverse effects as Baycol," says Dr. Joseph Mercola, Medical Director of the Optimal Wellness Center in Schaumburg, Illinois, "since they all act through the same biochemical process."

Baycol was voluntarily recalled earlier this month by its manufacturer, Bayer AG, after it was discovered that many people were being stricken with a condition known as rhabdomyolysis. It has since been ascertained that at least 52 people have died as a result, according to the Associated Press.

The European Medicines Evaluation Agency has announced that it is currently conducting a safety review of other "Statins", in light of the findings on Baycol. The head of the agency's drug evaluation unit, Noel Wathion, states "There is a need to look at the whole class of these products to see if there is a need for further action,'' according to a report from Reuters.

"The potential adverse effects of the entire class of these widely used drugs are particularly worrying considering that the new guidelines for treating high cholesterol, recently published by the US National Cholesterol Education Program, recommend treatment with cholesterol lowering drugs for a considerable portion of mankind," states Uffe Ravnskov, MD, author of The Cholesterol Myths (New Trends, 2000).

However, there is currently no indication that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will be following Europe's lead and look into the safety of the entire Statin class, despite the fact that they have been petitioned to do so by the consumer advocacy organization Public Citizen, among others.

"It may be that these drugs are causing muscle damage by interfering with the body's production and metabolism of Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone)," says Stephen Byrnes, PhD, author of Diet & Heart Disease : It's NOT What You Think (Whitman, 2001). "This substance is crucial for the proper functioning of muscle tissue, which includes the heart."

Other than Baycol, the statins that are currently available in the US are Lipitor (atorvastatin), Zocor (simvastatin), Pravachol (pravastatin), Mevacor (lovastatin), and Lescol (fluvastatin).

"This Baycol recall is likely just the tip of the iceberg, as a vast majority of cases will go undiagnosed. In many cases, the symptoms may be mild or may resemble another condition," states Mercola. "Even in cases where the condition is properly diagnosed, the association with the drugs may not have been made previously."

Diabetech® Extends its Lead as the Premiere Real-time Diabetes Intervention Service Provider

Diabetech® Extends its Lead as the Premiere Real-time Diabetes Intervention Service Provider

Turn-key programs, technology and capabilities support multiple diabetes trials.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 3, 2006

Diabetech is pleased to announce the implementation of its first regional diabetes care network. In addition to this large-scale rollout, Diabetech is also announcing several new research partnerships that are successfully using our diabetes intervention technology and service provider programs for developing new models of diabetes care. All of this exciting news is further evidence from the field that endocrinologists, certified diabetes educators and islet cell transplant teams recognize Diabetech as the leader in real-time remote patient monitoring technology and diabetic patient intervention programs.

We are known by many for our patent pending GlucoMON® device, which has recently been granted registered trademark status from the United States Patent & Trademark Office. The GlucoMON brand is synonymous with real-time glucose alerts and the easiest way in the world to remotely connect people with diabetes to their care team. "People who don't know us too well have often suggested that we should do something with all that blood glucose data besides just real-time alerts," says Eric Link, Diabetech's co-founder and Chief Technology Officer. "Little did they realize that our GlucoDYNAMIX™ diabetes intervention platform has been supporting clinical trials since 2002 allowing us to gain more experience developing more protocols with more patients working in collaboration with more providers than any other organization in the field of real-time diabetes patient management and social networking."

Our regional diabetes care network is a turn-key education & intervention program covering patients with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes living in rural South Texas. Funding for this program has been secured through a $455,208 USDA Distance Learning & Telemedicine grant awarded to Driscoll Children's Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas. This program will deliver the world's most advanced diabetes care to hundreds of children throughout South Texas using all of Diabetech's capabilities and technology (i. e. - GlucoDYNAMIX, GlucoMON®, GlucoMESSENGER™) along with our next generation devices including GlucoBLUE™, GlucoSTATION™ and GlucoMON®2 currently in development. These remote control medical device connectivity and management devices will initially include support for LifeScan®'s Ultra® and Ultra®2 meters. Support for additional glucose meters and other diagnostic devices are considered on a case-by-case basis.

In fact, there's not much that Diabetech doesn't do for its clients when it comes to managing patients in clinical research. As the only healthcare focused wireless data service provider offering a turn-key medical device and patient management service, Diabetech handles all of the following functions, including but not limited to: protocol design and system development, patient recruitment and patient records management, device design & manufacturing, device management (network activation, provisioning, wholesale nationwide wireless airtime, network management, technical support, etc…), real-time data collection, analysis including feedback, and completely automated patient interactions that stop short of crossing the medical advice line. We work closely with Principal Investigators and Institutional Review Boards as appropriate to ensure patient safety while pushing the limits of clinical informatics in the delivery of real-world diabetes care.

As Diabetech's most recent strategic research partner, the Baylor Health Care System is working with Diabetech to screen and monitor patients in its pancreatic islet cell transplant program. In addition to monitoring patients who have already begun their islet cell transplant therapy; the collaboration includes an agreement to co-develop Intensive Management Protocols that increase efficiencies and accuracy.

Other programs contributing to Diabetech's leadership include insulin pump start trials with Thomas Jefferson University and a previously conducted feasibility study for Animas Corporation. Our work with Texas Children's Hospital is in support of their pharma-sponsored trials. This involves automated remote monitoring of children with diabetes. Diabetech improves efficiencies, accuracy and timeliness of remote blood glucose monitoring following changes to the patient's prescribed regimen. Additional research partnerships include LifeScan, Flint Hills Scientific, Zyvex, the Care Products Institute (an affiliate of Kaiser Permanente) and a growing type 1 diabetes research community including patients and their families within our RightNow! Study. Results from several of our clinical trials will be released before the end of this year.

Diabetech's technology leadership also extends into the world of consumer-oriented service provider processes, IT infrastructure, wireless and broadband networks and includes the characterization and integration of devices manufactured by Cisco, Qorvus, Ambient Devices, and multiple cell phone manufacturers including Motorola, Nokia, Sony/Ericsson and others. Diabetech is an Adopter Member of the Bluetooth® Special Interest Group and developing the Wi-Med™ specification for enabling secure, transient medical device and data connectivity over pervasive wireless broadband networks.

This service offering is compliant with applicable federal and state regulations including HIPAA, which govern the privacy and security of human subjects research. For more information please call 877.My. Gluco or send email.

About Diabetech

Diabetech leads the world with more interventions served than any other diabetes program provider. A Dallas, Texas-based manufacturer of wireless medical devices and service provider infrastructure, we push the limits of clinical informatics in the delivery of real-world diabetes care.

CyberDefender CEO Gary Guseinov Supports Thirteenth Annual Race to Erase Multiple Sclerosis

CyberDefender CEO Gary Guseinov Supports Thirteenth Annual Race to Erase Multiple Sclerosis

CyberDefender(tm) Corporation, the security developer with the industry’s most advanced early defense technology today announced that its Chief executive Officer Gary Guseinov attended the Thirteenth Annual Race to Erase MS entitled Disco Fever to Erase MS benefiting The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis on May 12th, 2006 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. The Gala evening featured a dazzling live and silent auction, gourmet dinner, and live performances by Kool & The Gang, Sister Sledge and Natalie Cole, among others.


CyberDefender(tm) Corporation, the security developer with the industry’s most advanced early defense technology today announced that its Chief executive Officer Gary Guseinov attended the Thirteenth Annual Race to Erase MS entitled Disco Fever to Erase MS benefiting The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis on May 12th, 2006 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. The gala evening featured a dazzling live and silent auction, gourmet dinner, and live performances by Kool & The Gang, Sister Sledge and Natalie Cole, among others.

Co-Chairs Nancy Davis and Tommy Hilfiger welcomed celebrity friends and supporters to the gala. The evening benefited The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis and was sponsored by Tommy Hilfiger Corporation, American Airlines, Serono and Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.

"I believe it is very important to stand behind such social causes as it allows us as human beings to understand the pain others may be experiencing, and to help find a solution for people who may not have the means," said Guseinov.

Tom Arnold, Tony Danza, and Bill Maher returned as celebrity auctioneers at exciting live auction which featured an extraordinary list of unique luxury and entertainment items including a dance lesson with "Dancing with the Stars" champion Drew Lachey and his partner Cheryl Burke, a Yorkie puppy to take home and the chance to attend and cover an event with Tom Arnold for his hit show "Best Damn Sports Show Period" among other items to be announced.

The event was highlighted by an exclusive celebrity fashion show featuring one-of-a-kind disco inspired designs by Tommy Hilfiger. The event was produced by Suzanne de Passe, with David Foster as the musical director. Last year's event raised $2.7 million for The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis, which was founded by Davis in 1993.

This year Nancy Davis will also further her mission to eradicate MS, spread awareness and help others battling their diagnosis with the release of her first book LEAN ON ME: 10 Powerful Steps to Moving Beyond Your Diagnosis and Taking Back Your Life (Fireside/Simon & Schuster, Inc; April 2006). The book is a powerful tool to help guide anyone who has been given a life threatening diagnosis to making good choices, finding the right healthcare and taking back their life. It is not just the story of Nancy’s personal diagnosis, but a "how to" guide where she imparts her hard earned wisdom to others to help them face their disease and move on with their life. All guests of the Race to Erase MS received a copy of the book.

A seasoned marketing veteran in the software industry, Guseinov co-founded the company known today as CyberDefender Corporation with Chief Information Officer Igor Barash in 2003 when they began publishing a series of software utilities. In early 2005, the team acquired its own proprietary technology with the purchase of CyberDefender.

The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis is dedicated to the treatment and ultimate cure for MS. Funding research is the core focus of the Foundation and significant strides have been made to find the cause and cure of this devastating disease. All funds raised through The Race to Erase MS event support "The Nancy Davis Center Without Walls" program, a selected network of the nation’s top seven MS research centers representing UC San Francisco, Brigham & Women’s Harvard Hospital, Yale, The Cleveland Clinic, Oregon Health Science University, Johns Hopkins and University of Southern California. This nationwide collaboration of physicians, scientists and clinicians are on the cutting-edge of innovative research programs and therapeutic approaches to eradicate MS. It is the hope of the Foundation that in addition to combating MS through research in a clinical environment, an increased awareness will be created by educating the public about this mystifying disease.

Market America and Greensboro Begin Preparations for International Convention

Preperations for large international event begin in Greensboro, N. C.

GREENSBORO, N. C. (PRWEB) July 12, 2005

Every year about this time, the streets of Greensboro are colored red, white and blue. No, it is not a belated Independence Day celebration. It is for Market AmericaÂ’s annual International Convention. This year will be no different.

Come August 4, the Joseph S. Koury Convention Center, Wendover Avenue and the Greensboro Coliseum will once again swim in the colors of Market America, a Greensboro-based Internet marketing company that specializes in One-to-One Marketing and Mass Customization. The company will hold its 13th annual International Convention August 4-7, 2005 at the Greensboro Coliseum.

According to the Greensboro Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, the eventÂ’s attendees annually inject nearly $20 million into the local economy. The four-day event also boasts the largest attendance of any non-sports-related event held at the Greensboro Coliseum.

“As our company continues to grow, so do our events,” said James Ridinger, Market America’s president and CEO. “The Greensboro community has been an important part of the growth of this company and this event. This year’s event will feature the introduction of quite a few new products, world-renowned experts in health and nutrition and even two Olympic athletes bound for the gold at the 2006 Winter Games.”

Market AmericaÂ’s 13th annual International Convention will feature Dr Shari Lieberman, author of the best-selling book The Real Vitamin & Mineral Book, as well as the popular Dare to Lose. Dr. Lieberman is an authority on health, nutrition and well-being. She has been in private practice for more than 20 years, is regularly quoted in numerous womenÂ’s magazines and has appeared on major talk shows and news networks, such as Larry King Live and MSNBC. 

Also speaking at the event will be Dr. Steven Lamm, known to millions of television viewers as the house doctor on ABC’s “The View” and a practicing internist and faculty member at the New York University School of Medicine. He is also the author of the just-released men’s health book, The Hardness Factor.

Olympic speedskaters Jennifer Rodriguez, 2005 World Sprint champion and 2002 bronze medalist, and KC Boutiette, three-time Olympian, will also make an appearance at the event. The skaters are sponsored by Market America and preparing to compete in the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin, Italy.

All speakers will be available for interviews during the event. Rodriguez and Boutiette will only be available on Wednesday before the event and Thursday, August 4.


Market AmericaÂ’s unique business model combines the power of the Internet and One-to-One Marketing to sell innovative products and services through independent distributors around the world. The companyÂ’s efforts in Mass Customization and Customer Relationship Management have resulted in explosive sales and impressive growth.

Founded in 1992, the company has realized more than $1.5 billion in suggested retail sales. The company now has more than 100,000 independent distributors worldwide and plans for a 2005 launch into the Pacific Rim. More information is available at www. marketamerica. com.

The New Generation of Chiropractic Patient Education

The New Generation of Chiropractic Patient Education

This release announces ILLUM INNATE. A new and innovative teaching device designed to educate chiropractic patients on the principals of spinal nerve function.

Covina, CA (PRWEB) June 15, 2006

This release announces ILLUM INNATE. A new and innovative teaching device designed to educate chiropractic patients on the principals of spinal nerve function.

Never before has chiropractic patient education been so simple. Imagine, a full size demonstration spine with nerves that actually light up to visually demonstrate nerve flow activity! ILLUM INNATE was designed by a chiropractor for chiropractors to be visually stunning and captivating with the ability to demonstrate an array of nervous system function.

Created to significantly increase patient comprehension, this unique device employs sophisticated electro-illumination circuitry to make patient education easy to understand while having more fun in the process. Typically, educating chiropractic patients about the process of nerve irritation, misalignments, or vertebral subluxations simply lack the impact, excitement, or lasting impression to be effective. Relying on spoken words, static models, or charts to educate chiropractic patients will seldom make a big enough impact. Much like an electrician, a Chiropractors focus is in the integrity of the nerve impulses and the restoration of normal nerve flow; allowing for the innate expression of good Health. The best doctors make their lessons relevant to their patients by involving as many of the five senses as possible. Undoubtedly, ILLUM INNATE will capture the creativity and imagination of anyone who sees it.

“It’s exciting to see a patient’s eyes light up as they grasp the concept of spinal nerve activity aided by ILLUM INNATE'S stunning light show.” Says creator Olman Mata D. C. “Once they understand the big idea they will keep coming back, and in turn, tell others about you and your impressive teaching device.” ILLUM INNATE stands over 2 feet tall and loaded with 144 individual embedded LED lights with 7 different animated illumination patterns. Each unit is individually hand built and is ready to use out of the box with the included batteries and power adaptor.

Educate with ILLUM INNATE

-- Patient consultations

-- New patient exams
