Most Wired Hospitals Use Technology to Partner with Patients on Health
Interactive Metronome® (IM) is a revolutionary, research-backed therapy program that can help children and adults who have a developmental deficit, are suffering from a neurological injury, or battling a degenerative condition.
IM uses computer-based technology and the principles of the traditional musical metronome to encourage users to match the computer’s rhythm, thereby improving their internal sense of timing. The therapy includes the use of 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. Used in conjunction with other traditional physical, occupational and speech therapy, IM helps individuals make quicker, greater outcomes without negative side effects.
Conditions Interactive Metronome commonly treats:
- Auditory Processing Disorder
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Balance and Coordination
- Down’s Syndrome
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- Speech Fluency Problems
- Stroke/Brain Injury
A physician’s referral is required for therapy. For more information, call (402) 644-7396.
