The Interactive Metronome® (IM) consists of a steady beat and several types of
buttons (hand held, foot pad, etc). The goal for the client is to match their
physical pattern with the pattern of the beat down to the millisecond for a
sustained amount of time. Cognitive ability is linked to mental processing speed! Cognitive and behavioral changes noted after 12 sessions of Interactive Metronome:

  • Increased sustained attention over time
  • Increased ability to tune out distractions and multi-task
  • Improved working memory
  • Improved impulse control and self-monitoring
  • Improved mental processing speed
  • Improved problem solving/reasoning skills

Good candidates for Interactive Metronome are people who are experiencing:

  • Poor initiation of action
  • Impaired attention
  • Poor cognitive speed
  • Poor mental stamina
  • Poor planning/organization
  • Poor sequencing
  • Poor time management
  • Poor memory skills
  • Reasoning/abstract thinking
  • Impulsivity
  • Poor auditory processing
  • Poor word finding
  • Poor fine motor skills
  • Poor motor planning

IM has shown improvements in the following areas of the brain:

IM technology improves the efficiency of a person’s internal brain clock and
temporal processing ability. This increased neural efficiency results in more
efficient brain connectivity, communication, and synchronization via increased
integrity of the brain’s white matter tract-based communication system,
producing more efficient and effective communication between critical brain
networks.
