The Interactive Metronome (IM) is a therapeutic assessment and training program that improves attention, concentration, motor planning and sequencing. Improvements in those areas result in stronger motor control and coordination, enhanced balance and gait, and improved language and cognition.
Cognitive Solutions utilizes IM to provide 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 while encouraging him/her to improve their scores.
Individuals with motor and sensory disorders, learning deficits, speech and laguage delays, and various cognitive and physical difficulties can benefit from IM, because it accelerates therapy outcomes and exceeds traditional clinical expectations.
