PAT (Palpation Adjusting Technology)

Life University is yet again leading the way in chiropractic education with PAT (Palpation Adjusting Technology). PAT is an anatomically accurate, technology-based mannequin with the look, feel, size and weight of an average person. PAT allows students to receive immediate, objective feedback about the “where, how hard, how fast and in which direction” part of adjusting to develop these important skills necessary for care of patients.
