What is Interactive Metronome?
Interactive Metronome® is an evidence-based assessment and training tool that measures & improves Neurotiming, or the synchronization of neural impulses within key brain networks for cognitive, communicative, sensory & motor performance. As the individual activates a trigger in time with a steady auditory beat, Interactive Metronome technology provides real-time auditory and visual feedback for millisecond timing.
Knowing whether client is hitting before, after, or exactly in sync with the beat to the millisecond allows the individual to make immediate, online corrections to improve timing & rhythm over the course of training.
Peer reviewed studies repeatedly confirm the importance of timing & rhythm for human performance. According to Interactive Metronome research, improving Neurotiming may result in better function in the following areas:
Expressive and Receptive Language
Upper Extremity Function (Parkinson’s, hemiplegia, CP, hand function)
Athletic Performance (golf, soccer)
