Title Advent and evolution: Palmer's Hylo adjusting table
Journal Chiropr Hist. 2013 Winter;32(2):21-25
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

The original tables used for administering chiropractic adjustments to patients were Spartan in appearance with no upholstering or other specific accommodations for a patient's anatomy. As the profession matured, practitioners saw the need for adjusting tables that took advantage of technology to assist in the delivery of the chiropractic adjustment and to make it easier for the patient to mount and dismount the apparatus. This paper is a look as the first lines of raising and lowering adjusting tables, known as "Hylo" tables, manufactured and marketed by the Palmer School of Chiropractic from 1910 to approximately late 1928.
