The electroencephaloneuromentimpograph was a machine that was used in the B.J. Palmer Chiropractic Clinic around the 1940’s. It was used before and after an adjustment to prove correct spinal analysis and its correction.
The instrument measured, evaluated, and calibrated “the quantity flow of mental impulse from brain to body, both before and after adjustment, thus proving correct place, correct time, correct manner.” The comparison of the before and after measurements was supposed to prove the increase or decrease of flow of mental impulse or nerve force flow, to see if the adjustment improved or worsened the case.
There were two versions of the instrument because
Electroencephaloneuromentimpograph No.1 ran on “twenty sets of a particular dry cell battery”, and during WW2 they were unable to acquire these batteries, and the machine was out of order for one year. Then came the Electroencephaloneuromentimpograph No. 2, which did not need batteries, and it was the largest machine of it’s kind back then.
