Interactive Metronome® Training to Improve
Cognitive, Behavioral, Social and Motor Skills
Interactive Metronome® (IM) is a computer-based technology that encourages users to match the computer’s rhythm, thereby improving their sense of timing. An increasing amount of scientific evidence demonstrates that the brain’s internal clock is integral to the development and maintenance of many cognitive, behavioral, social, and motor skills.
Interactive Metronome® involves the principals of the traditional musical metronome, combined with the precision of a personal computer to create engaging and interactive exercises. The 15-hour program uses head phones along with hand and foot sensors to coordinate movements to computer-generated musical beats. Like training wheels on a bicycle, a patented auditory guidance system progressively challenges participants to improve their motor planning, sequencing, and rhythmic timing performance.
IM Training Benefits:
- Those with brain timing malfunctions due to a medical condition such as:
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
2. Or is disrupted due to:
- Parkinson’s Disease
3. Learning Dissabilities such as:
- Auditory processing disorder
- Concentration problems
IM therapy improves the timing and cognitive functions in both children and adults. Both therapists and patients find Interactive Metronome to be challenging yet fun. IM training engages the patients and produces significant results.
This training can also be done in the comfort of your home with IM-Home.
A free assessment with Interactive Metronome® training is currently available through the clinic.
