Interactive Metronome


Interactive Metronome (IM) is a brain-based rehabilitation
assessment and training program to help assist individuals with neurological or developmental deficits.


How Does IM Work?


The IM program provides a structured, goal-oriented training process that challenges the patient while exercising with computer generated beats, instructed hand and foot exercises, and repetitive motor actions, and more.

This program requires a referral by your doctor and most of the costs are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most third party payers.

Average patients attend 12 to 15 sessions that are usually about one hour long.

Children and adults with motor planning and sequencing problems, motor and sensory disorders, learning deficits, and various cognitive and physical difficulties may benefit from the IM program.
