Many Occupational Therapists are looking for modalities to differentiate their practice from their colleagues and of course to help their clients have better outcomes in a shorter period of time.
The Interactive Metronome (IM) is an evidence-based assessment and treatment tool used by OTs and other professionals who work with pediatric and adult clients with neurological conditions that affect cognitive and motor functioning.
OTs know the significant role that motor planning and sequencing play in helping clients become more functionally independent in the activities of daily living (ADLs). IM focuses on improving rhythmicity and timing and provides an objective method for measuring deficits and for tracking improvement.
Clinical Studies have shown significant improvements in cognitive and physical skills including:

Why Choose Interactive Metronome
Today, there are more than 20,000 certified IM providers in over 5,000 clinics, hospitals and universities worldwide. In addition to a wealth of published research, IM has received an abundance of media attention including the CBS Early Show, CNN News, US News and World Report, as well as various segments that have aired on hundreds of TV affiliates, radio stations and national publications.
Interactive Metronome is approved by AOTA, ASHA, and BOC to offer continuing education credits for its curriculum. It is our goal to educate professionals and contribute to the most complete functional outcomes of their clients.
“The IM has provided a tool for therapists across our company to engage patients in their therapy. With the IM we can push for greater gains in cognition, coordination and balance than we could before. It is a proven modality used by therapists to get better outcomes.”

“I have used the Interactive Metronome system since 2006. As an occupational therapist working in the school system and in private practice, I have found the Interactive Metronome to be a profoundly effective intervention. Results that I have seen include generalized improvements with body awareness, spatial awareness, self-monitoring, motor planning and attention as well as numerous functional task improvements. These results have emerged for my students, my clients, my family and myself. The system is so beautifully and flexibly designed that I have been able to adapt its use as a powerful intervention booster with hundreds of students and clients with a wide range of ages and abilities. It is a cornerstone of my practice as an OT.”
“In today’s tough economic times and with cuts in insurance coverage for therapy we are not always provided with enough time to work with our clients and give them the weeks/months of treatment they often need. Therefore as therapists we need to look for tools that will help our clients achieve their best outcomes in the shortest period of time. I have been using Interactive Metronome for almost ten years and have witnessed statistically significant progress in just a few short weeks of therapy. I believe Interactive Metronome should be the first step in a therapeutic approach to improve the emotional, cognitive, motor, academic and sensory deficits of your clients. It is the only program of it’s kind that delivers results so quickly and is so easy in it’s application. It is suitable for adults and children regardless of their disabilities. It should be a part of every therapist’s practice!”

“Introducing Interactive Metronome to our facility has not only changed our approach to facilitating treatment techniques, but has also allowed us to target a population who felt there was no hope in improving their quality of life. My patients who have completed the IM program have found the ability to return to meaningful activities by improving their balance, coordination, and overall confidence in their daily lives. Not only has this program brought us great results from a treatment perspective, but it has allowed our facility to grow and be known throughout the community.”

“Using Interactive Metronome in a non-traditional manner with infants through preschool aged children with moderate to severe developmental delays has been so inspiring! It has been the catalyst that many of our children needed in order to readily initiate play and social interaction, improve coordination, self-regulate and improve communication.
Interactive metronome has provided us with a creative avenue to facilitate progress in many children with severe physical and cognitive challenges who previously had very limited functional gains.”

“When using the IM with my clients, I convey to them I am training their brain to achieve their personal gains.
IM allows me to be creative in customizing my client’s treatment protocol to assist them in reaching their functional ADL goals which, in turn, allows them to be more independent in the home as well as in the community.”
Lisa Poe, OTR/L
“IM has made a wonderful addition to our clinic as it is the perfect enhancement to traditional therapies. It has helped our clients to learn to focus and attend as well as increasing coordination which increased their goal attainment. It is brain based, and works on a millisecond level to help make connections and changes! I am finding more and more clients benefit from IM!”
