Why Choose Us?


We Solved a Critical Need

Dr. Colloca, NMI’s CEO and Founder, reflected on the journey. “€œIt was all about solving a need,” he said when asked why he began NMI. “€œInitially, I saw the need to provide chiropractors with three major improvements,” stated Dr. Colloca:


  • Adjusting device that didn’t hurt chiropractor’s hands
  • Improved adjusting performance from research-based new technology innovation
  • An evidence-based analysis in technique application

  • Born out of these tenets were the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® and Impulse Adjusting Technique®. A short decade later, Impulse Adjusting Technique® is one of the profession’s fastest growing chiropractic techniques, utilized in thousands of offices in over 52 countries around the world.

    Made in the USA

    Neuromechanical Innovations prides itself on its €œMade in the U.S.A.€ manufacturing: Featuring a 12,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters containing its ISO 13485 Certified medical device manufacturing facility in Chandler, Arizona.


    Dr. Colloca admits: “It would be easy to have our product made in China, like the spring-loaded activation devices that are on the market, but taking the easy road isn’t always the best road. We’ve implemented a quality management system in our own manufacturing facility that guarantees the quality of our products and secures our ability to offer a 3-year warranty on our products - one of the longest in the industry.”

    Commitment to Quality

    ISO 13485 Certified l US FDA Registered l Health Canada Listed l UL Listed


    “When it comes to ensuring the efficacy of the Impulse Family of Adjusting Instruments, to say that we’€™ve ‘gone the extra mile’ is an accurate statement,” says Dr. Colloca. "Our approach has always been, €œdo what’€™s in the best interest of our doctors, regardless of the cost.


    Our commitment to quality can be easily gauged by assessing a company’€™s certifications. No other instrument adjusting company has FDA clearance and Health Canada Class 2 medical device licensure backed by an ISO 13485 Medical Device Certification and UL listing (Underwriters Laboratories®, Inc.). These accolades are testimony to our made in the USA pride and the quality product placed in your hands.


    With a three-year warranty, you can rest assured you’€™re using the very best adjusting instruments on your patients.”

    Our Goal

    Everything a Doctor of Chiropractic Could Ask For In An Adjusting Instrument

    Dr. Colloca credits the unprecedented adoption of Impulse® to its unique benefits. “Impulse doesn’€™t hurt chiropractors’€™ hands and wrists like the old fashioned adjusting instruments that you had to squeeze to get to work. We improved the waveform of the thrust to emulate a half-sine wave that is twice as fast as the competition, and expanded the range of forces that the clinician could select from, in addition to adding single and multiple thrust capabilities for the user. In all, it’s everything a chiropractor could ask for in an adjusting instrument.
