Interactive Metronome® (IM)

What is IM?

The Interactive Metronome is a therapeutic assessment and training program that improves attention, concentration, motor planning and sequencing.  Improvement in those areas result in stronger motor control and coordination, enhanced balance and gait, and improved language and cognition.

How Does IM Work?

IM provides a structured, goal-oriented program that challenges the patient to synchronize a range of whole body exercises to a precise computer-generated beat.  The patient attempts to match the rhythmic beat with repetitive motor movements.  IM’s game-like features engage the patient with auditory and visual guidance and provide real-time feedback whil encouraging him/her to improve their scores.

What Are The Benefits?

IM integrated sight, sound and physical movements to improve:

· Working Memory—ability to store information and ideas

· Attention—ability to focus on information tasks and ignore distractions

· Processing—rate at which your child is able to accurately perceive and manipulate information

· Sequencing—placing of detailed information in its accustomed order

· Motor Coordination—combination of purposeful body movements working together

Who Can Benefit?

Children with motor and sensory disorders, learning deficits, speech and language delays, and various cognitive and physical difficulties can benefit from IM.
