MASTERING THE K7/K7x & SCAN INTERPRETATION
Mastering the K7/K7x and Scan Interpretation Course is a hands-on course designed for K7 users, new and experienced, to learn how to utilize their K7 for recording diagnostic data, interpreting the data and taking a bite registration.
Mastering the K7/K7x and Scan Interpretation Course will start off with a 3 hour lecture covering how to properly prepare the patient for a Neuromuscular workup, which includes cleaning the skin, positioning the electrodes, placement of the magnet and alignment of the K7 Sensor Array. Each of the pre-TENS Scans (9, 9 light co, 11, 2, 3, 6, & 13) will be discussed in detail, which include the theory and science behind each Scan, how to properly record each Scan, options available for each Scan, and how the Scans provide you a diagnostic picture of the patients.
After lunch the hands-on portion of the course will begin and each doctor and their team members will work together. Each office will choose a team member to hook up to the K7, making sure to follow the proper procedures they just learned. The instructor, Douglas Chase, DDS, will work with each team to make sure they understand and record each Scan correctly.
After recording the pre-TENS Scans, the class will be instructed on how to properly hook up the J5 and start their team member TENSing. While the team member is TENSing, the instructor will cover in detail the post-TENS Scans (10, 5, 10 light co). This will include the theory and science behind each Scan, how to record each Scan, options available for each Scan, and how to take a bite registration utilizing the K7 and J5.
On the second day, the hands-on part of the course will continue and will focus more on the treatment aspect of the K7 and reiterate how to take a proper bite registration. The doctor and team will again work together to record both pre and post TENS Scans to further their knowledge of the K7 and each of the Scans.
The afternoon of the second day will be devoted to reviewing the patient data that was recorded, providing both insights into how and why the Scans are recorded along with interpretation of each Scan individually and as a whole. Practical tips for integrating the K7 into your practice will be discussed along with case acceptance and case completion. Dr. Chase will cover dental issues such as a retruded mandible, overclosed bite and worn teeth.
