    The teaching of adjusting skills, also referred to as manual therapy, is paramount in chiropractic education. Until recently this important skill has been taught using demonstration and observation of the manual skill of the student by the faculty. New technology has been developed to allow the collection of instantaneous data on the loads transmitted by the student to a human analogue mannequin (HAMTM ). This data can be immediately quantified and compared to expert force-time profiles allowing the student to model adjusting force loads demonstrated by experts.

PBI

The PBI rotation encompasses the clinical experience that takes place in 35 private practices during the intern’s 10th trimester.
