We are very excited to announce the addition of Interactive Metronome to our suite of specialised therapies developed to harness the power of neuroplasticity and assist brain recovery.
Interactive Metronome (IM) is an in-clinic therapy. In addition, Hemispheres Psychology and Neurotherapy are authorised resellers and can provide IM-Home to clients who decide to purchase their own IM units. Optimal training with IM is recommended at least twice a week and sessions blocks can be delivered over a period of eight to ten-weeks.
Here is an overview of Interactive Metronome:
Interactive Metronome (IM) is a brain-based rehabilitation assessment and training program that is designed to improve neural timing. IM utilises a metronome approach to provide real-time millisecond audio and/or visual feedback to improve cognitive and motor functioning.
IM has been proven, through evidence-based research, to directly improve the processing abilities that affect attention, motor planning, and sequencing. This, in turn, strengthens motor skills, including mobility and gross motor function, and many fundamental cognitive capacities such as planning, organising, and language. IM can significantly increase the ability to process information leading directly to improvements with:
- Motor control and coordination
- Attention and concentration
- Processing speed
- Language processing
- A decrease in impulsive behaviour
- Balance and gait
- Strength and endurance
- Academic performance
- Motor Skills for independent living
- Fine/gross motor skills
