How it Works

How does it work?

The IQS is comprised of a suite of computer programs that can be used to direct questions to a subject, and an electronic interface called a Q-Port. The Q-port is the size of a hardbound book and it manages the output of digitally coded “Queries” from the computer and then communicates the response from the subject to the IQS software. The system is totally noninvasive. The electrical currents involved are of the order of .000010 amp and represent less electrical stress than the ambient electrical environment. The IQS does not offer any programmed data analyses or “diagnosis”. It can however record the subject’s response to a wide variety of questions including self-reported sources of stress and anticipated benefits from various supplements, functional adjustments, or other remedial options.

The overall process is as follows:

The IQS consultant uses the IQS to compose a “Query”; the Query is transmitted as a low level digital code to the subject; the subject interprets the Query; the subject performs an internal investigation and analysis; the subject responds to the query by changing the electrical resistance of the skin at a specific location. The Q-port registers the skin resistance and recodes it for transmission to the IQS which records the response. The fact that this method works, as demonstrated by hundreds of thousands of beneficial sessions over the last 30 years, is testament to the tremendous power of this Innate Intelligence with which we are communicating. We call this specific process EDD©, ElectroDermal Dialog. We have observed that a person is able to reliably respond to queries a rate of about 30 per minute.


Dr. Curtin (PhD. Physics) was instrumental in the creation of the first Computerized ElectroDermal Response (EDR) system in the 1970’s. He has since continued to advance the theoretical basic of the technology as well as improve the scope and function of systems using the technology. The IQS3 is the most advanced implementation of the technology presently available. We are continuing to improve the system itself, professional education related to the IQS, and the business models and methods that utilize the IQS.
