Interactive Metronome

Good Shepherd offers Interactive Metronome therapy as part of its comprehensive physical, speech and cognitive therapy services.

What is an Interactive Metronome?

Interactive Metronome technology works by challenging the patient to improve the brain’s timing and processing skills through the use of whole-body exercises in the presence of a computer-generated beat. The patient attempts to match the rhythmic beat with repetitive motor movements. The interactive features engage the patient with auditory and visual guidance and provide real-time feedback.

Interactive Metronome, a rehabilitation technology, provides an assessment of information processing, timing and motor planning skills needed to perform everyday activities. An individualized computer-assisted training program will be developed by the therapist and may target working memory, attention, visual and auditory processing, language skills and cognition, as well as sequencing, motor coordination, balance, gait and/or fine motor skills in order to enhance overall quality of life.

What Conditions can benefit from Interactive Metronome?

Patients who may benefit from Interactive Metronome include those with the following diagnoses:

  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Post-concussion
  • Motor deficits
  • Cognitive deficits
  • Speech and language disorders
  • Auditory/language and sensory processing disorders
  • Balance disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis

Interactive Metronome as part of a Therapy Plan

Interactive Metronome may be used as part of a therapy plan following an initial diagnosis, and it may be beneficial as a “second chance” program for those who are years past their illness or injury.

Good Shepherd’s speech-language pathologists (SLPs), physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (IPTAs) are specially certified to use Interactive Metronome in this therapy setting.
