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.

If you are using a computer that is plugged in you don’t want it going to sleep until you tell it to go to sleep. Putting the computer to sleep shuts down the network connection, freezes applications (like ChiroPulse) and takes time to wake up and login. This is an unnecessary annoyance.

In Windows 10 simply click the windows button and type sleep then select “Power and Sleep Settings“. In Windows 7 use Control Panel “Power settings” then click “Change when the computer sleeps”. Set sleep to never and “turn off display” in a 2-hours or more. Likewise in power options turn on “high performance” mode.

When leaving your computer unattended with access by patients, use WINKEY+L to lock your computer requiring Windows login to proceed. Also use the PRIVACY button in ChiroPulse to protect your data when the computer is not left unattended. Continue reading

Buying a New Computer or replacing an older PC?

This article will help you select the best computer to protect your office/patient data. While PCs typically last for many years please prepare to regularly replace your PCs (every 3 years or so) so that performance is maintained and outages are avoided if something fails expectantly and without warning. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!  Your SERVER PC stores all your patient data on a magnetic data drive that spins 7,200 time per minute! Unfortunately PCs don’t have accurate “gas gauges” or “warning lights” so an old PC that “still works” today could be the one that won’t power on tomorrow.
