Recently we had an inquiry from a student interested in the history of the Nervo-Scope. The Nervo-Scope was manufactured by the Electronic Development Laboratories in New York, as an alternative to the Neurocalometer in the 1940s.
According to the instruction manual, the device enabled chiropractors to be able to detect and measure nerve pressure and this analysis helped with better adjustments. They were marketed as being “extremely durable and dignified in appearance” and were made to be portable, “for use anywhere, on house calls, or in your office or clinic.”
Come visit us to see our resources on the Nervo-Scope or find out more about other chiropractic equipment. We are open Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm. Special Services is located in L103, on the 1st floor of the David D. Palmer Health Sciences Library.
