For wireless use please refer to this article – click here.

If you are using ChiroPulse on a computer, laptop or tablet that is on desk & not used portably there are some useful settings you really should use to optimize your ChiroPulse experience & performance.  Please follow these two easy steps!  Printable View Printable View

1. Disable sleep on your laptop/tablet when plugged in.
