WHAT IS Interactive Metronome® (IM)?

The Interactive Metronome® (IM) combines the concept of a musical metronome with a patented technology computerized program that accurately measures, assesses, and improves a person’s rhythm and timing.

It is the only program that uses a patented auditory guidance system plus interactive exercises to improve the foundational skills essential for learning and development.
 

Interactive Metronome Highlights
  • Highly technical application of high intensity frequency of repetitions into the neural system
  • Advanced research available in the areas of sensory, motor, speech and academic function
  • Advanced, replicated research in sports, such as golf.
  • Treat children and adults with difficulties related to motor planning, sequencing, and auditory attention.
  • Temporal timing is considered to be at a level of high integration, and best applicable after foundations of incoming processing has been improved to ensure a good “hold” on the clinical and functional changes.

Interactive Metronome® in action

How does the Interactive Metronome® (IM) work?

The IM program ‘trains the brain’ to plan, sequence and process information more effectively through repetition of interactive exercises. During the IM training a trainee wears stereo headphones and listens to special sounds that the IM computer software program generates to guide the training process. Motion sensing triggers, connected to the computer via cables, relay information about the trainees performance to the computer during training. One trigger is worn like glove on either hand. It senses exactly when the hand makes contact when tapped during training. The other trigger is placed on the floor, and senses exactly when the trainee taps either a toe or heel upon it.

Thirteen different hand and foot exercises are performed while auditory guide tones direct the individual to match the metronome beat. The IM program analyzes the accuracy of each tap as it happens and instantaneously creates a sound that the trainee hears in the headphones.

They learn to focus all their attention on the steady metronome beat sound in their headphones, without being interrupted by thoughts around them. IM trainees experience maintaining precise focus for longer and longer periods of time. The ability to maintain focus becomes automated. The mental control learned through repetitively successful planning and sequencing experiences is rarely forgotten. Upon completion of IM training (following approximately a total of 35, 000 repetitions) most trainees find it significantly easier to learn more complex cognitive and physical tasks.

The difference between the individual’s response and the computer-generated beat is measured in milliseconds (ms.) and a score is provided. A low ms. score indicates improved timing and overall performance. The program consists of 10, 12 or 15 one-hour sessions, which can be completed in 3 to 5 weeks. Additional sessions may be necessary and is decided through an individualized protocol.
