What is Interactive Metronome?

Interactive Metronome (IM), moreover, is an assessment and treatment tool extensively employed by therapists and other professionals. Furthermore, it is instrumental for those who work with pediatric and adult patients afflicted by neurological conditions that impact cognitive and motor functioning. In addition to this, IM offers an objective method for measuring deficits and, equally important, for tracking improvement.

IM is an evidence-based approach that enhances therapeutic outcomes by engaging patients in improving their cognitive and motor skills. Moreover, the program’s thoughtfully designed structure ensures that patients can readily recognize their progress as it unfolds, ultimately bolstering their motivation for therapy and propelling them towards a successful recovery. IM is used by therapists at Innovative Health & Wellness Group to improve:

  • Attention
  • Coordination
  • Language Processing
  • Reading and Math Fluency
  • Control of Impulsivity / Aggression

Did You Know That Your Brain has an “Internal Clock” That Keeps Time?

And that it does so at various intervals: microseconds, milliseconds, seconds, minutes, and hours? Furthermore, timing in the brain (or what scientists call “temporal processing”) is responsible for detecting where a sound is coming from as sound hits one ear microseconds before the other. Additionally, it plays a crucial role in waking up and putting our brain to sleep every 12 hours or so. Moreover, timing is vital for focusing attention, enhancing reading comprehension, remembering information, processing speech, improving motor coordination, and several other human capabilities.

How Does Interactive Metronome Work?

There exists a growing body of literature describing the neural timing deficits in ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, Reading Disorders, Auditory Processing Disorder, Parkinson’s, and other conditions. Traumatic Brain Injury or Stroke may also disrupt timing in the brain. By addressing timing in the brain with Interactive Metronome (IM) alongside functional interventions with a therapist, you are not only addressing areas of ability that impact achievement and independence but also the heart of the problem, that of deficient neural timing within and between regions of the brain that are underlying many of the problems you are working on in therapy. This leads to more efficient treatment and better overall treatment outcomes.

IM’s game-like auditory-visual platform engages the patient and provides constant feedback at the millisecond level to promote synchronized timing in the brain. Furthermore, exercises can be customized with your therapist, involving a hierarchy of increasingly complex movements, precisely timed and intertwined with gradually higher cognitive processing, attention, and decision-making. Notably, it is the only neuro-motor therapy tool that can be used successfully with all patients across the therapy spectrum. This includes those who require total hands-on assistance due to cognitive and/or physical impairments, as well as individuals who are very young or elderly.

IM takes therapy to a new level. Additionally, rather than simply performing repetitive movement or cognitive activities to achieve functional gains, therapists who incorporate IM into functional therapy activities report that their patients are more engaged. Moreover, they are more alert and complete far more repetitions of functional movement patterns and activities in a more precise and timely manner. Consequently, they demonstrate faster progress toward cognitive, communicative, and physical therapy goals. Furthermore, patients who are challenged and can see measurable improvements are more motivated to continue their therapy and achieve optimal success.
