Interactive Metronome (IM) is a brain-based rehabilitation assessment and training program that utilizes a metronome to provide real-time millisecond audio and/or visual feedback to improve cognitive and motor functioning. It has been proven, through evidence-based research, to directly improve the processing abilities that affect attention, motor planning, and sequencing. This, in turn, strengthens motor skills, including mobility and gross motor function, and many fundamental cognitive capacities such as planning, organizing, and language. IM can significantly increase your patient’s ability to process information leading directly to improvements with:
1. Motor Control and Coordination
2. Attention and Concentration
3. Processing Speed
4. Language Processing
6. A decrease in Impulsive Behavior
7. Balance and Gait
8. Strength and Endurance
9. Academic Performance
10. Motor Skills for Independent Living
11. Fine/Gross Motor Skills
Outcomes have been accelerated and expectations for patients, both pediatric and adult, have been exceeded. Plus, given the newest research that supports the important role cognition plays in fall prevention, IM is a tool that can be used across a multidisciplinary approach to greatly reduce the risk of falls.
Interactive Metronome® (IM) is an evidence-based assessment and training tool that measures & improves Neuro-timing, or the synchronization of neural impulses within key brain networks for cognitive, communicative, sensory & motor performance.
IM technology allows the patient to receive real-time auditory and visual feedback that is down the millisecond of accuracy, allowing the patient to make adjustments and corrections during their training session.
