Activator® I Adjusting Instrument
The Activator® adjusting instrument is a hand-held device which can produce adjusting force. The original research-supported high-speed low force instrument for all areas of the spine, including the extremities. Backed by over 30 years of Activator® Methods research.
Four Activator® adjusting instruments were used to introduce a force into a measuring system. Surprisingly, the force decreased linearly after two or three revolutions of the adjustment knob. The adjustment knob allows greater anvil movement when the activator adjusting instrument produces a force. A model based on the physical mechanics of the activator adjusting instrument was able to explain 88 percent of the force variation. Similar data was available from meric and DNFT adjusting so they were compared with the activator adjusting instrument. The fixed energy of the activator adjusting instrument lead us to the hypothesis that significant movement of bone may not be necessary for the healing process to take place.
