“The Interactive Metronome is the one tool we can count on to consistently help our clients move forward in a measurable way and it’s flexible, allowing us to remotely train clients, which is very convenient.
I highly recommend Interactive Metronome and encourage all clinicians to learn about its many benefits.”
OTR/L, Founder of Exploration Kids Therapy
“I have been using Interactive Metronome every day in my practice since 2003. It helped us to establish our practice and even helped me as a personal therapy tool. It has been a great honor to be able to use Interactive Metronome and witness the results we get with it and it’s been helpful in growing our practice and we are excited about implementing IM-360’s remote training capabilities for our clients”
OT, Co-owner of Advanced Therapy Solutions
“I completed [my IM certification training] over lunch breaks. Over a three week period. And that’s what struck me the most about IM, was that within a three week period there could affect so much change in functional performance. It wasn’t typical, it wasn’t what I was used to seeing. You know, traditionally, we expect improvement, but not in such a short timeframe. So over the years, that’s really struck me, as well with the kids and the adults that I’ve worked with. Really seeing improvements in shorter timeframes and of course, everyone’s different, but the end results have been the same, where we see improved functional performance and moving on to greater things and embracing life’s challenges. So to me, that’s been the greatest advantage of bringing Interactive Metronome into my clinical practice.“

“Recently I was working with an adult patient who had a stroke, it was affecting his right dominant hand. He had a lot of difficulties just opening and closing his hands to pick up a glass or to hold his toothbrush. We went through several weeks of the Interactive Metronome and it improved his coordination and reaction speed enough to the point that he could bounce and catch a ping pong ball.”

“As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I have seen firsthand over the course of a decade what can be achieved with Interactive Metronome. I loved the product so much, I decided to join the company to help other clinicians implement it in their practice so they could achieve even better outcomes with their patients. I really enjoy helping and supporting our clinicians to customize and individualize training for their clients so that they can get the most out of Interactive Metronome.”
Clinical Education Director at Interactive Metronome
“Having Interactive Metronome in my bag of tricks has really helped me to be able to utilize a multitasking environment where my patients are forced to use both cognition and motor skills at the same time. After doing some research and after using IM with some of my patients, I quickly found out that using IM is really a way to maximize and accelerate the outcomes my patients were having.”

“I’ve seen the effectiveness of Interactive Metronome in a clinical environment for over 20 years. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, the focus of my private practice is treating ADHD in both pediatrics and adults. What I love about Interactive Metronome is that it delivers dependable, objective, and statistically measurable improvements for my clients. As a result of therapy clients become more engaged conversationally, there are shorter verbal delays, vocal prosody is normalized and patients get better at their jobs and are more engaged with their families and friends. I highly recommend any clinician give Interactive Metronome a try because it has done so many amazing things for so many patients.”

“ I was looking for therapies that were a little bit innovative, out of the box, so to speak, and this came across my desk one day. I realized that it was backed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan and I said let’s give it a shot and see what we can see as far as outcomes. My son, at the time, had significant auditory processing issues, he was nine years old, expressive language deficits, receptive language deficits, social deficits, and just had a lot of problems academically. I knew he was above average intelligence, I just didn’t know how to get in there and unlock the door and Interactive Metronome did that for us. It really I still to this day say that it changed his life. Anyway, I used this program for hundreds and hundreds of children over the years. So, I can’t say enough wonderful things about it.”

“I love the IM as a therapeutic tool in Pediatric Physical Therapy Practice. I have had children who can barely walk and catch a ball separately, but when using the Gait Mate with IM are able to bounce and catch a ball while they are walking. I have used IM to slow down kids who move too fast and speed up kids whose legs don’t keep pace with their body. It’s flexibility in treatment is limited only by the Therapists’ creativity!”

“I will add IM to my normal activities I would do with a patient. So in the clinic if we’re working on balance, I’ll add IM, if we’re working on strength I’ll add IM, I can continually increase the challenge by adding in the speed, adding alternating movements, or adding cognitive activities to the session. This helps to keep the patient engaged and motivated. Once they began using IM they’re quickly motivated and excited to use it and they can see that it helps to support improved outcomes.”

“IM research has demonstrated positive treatment effects across a variety of human performance domains and in a number of different clinical disorders. The diversity of domains positively impacted suggests that IM is impacting a domain-general brain-based neurocognitive mechanism or sets of mechanisms.”

“… preliminary research shows a 40% or more improvement on standardized neuropsychological measures of hyperactivity and spatial working memory in children’s diagnosed with ADHD…”
READING & COMPREHENSION: “… children ages 2-5 who received 4 hrs of Interactive Metronome training outperformed those who only received the language and reading interventions on measures of reading rate, fluency and comprehension control group in reading and language skills…” | GORT4-fluency +0.32 | GORT4-comprehension +0.77 | GORT4-rate +0.96 | Reading Naturally +5.00 | DIBELS-6 +5.77
“…IM group showed re-myelination and reestablishment of critical white matter tracts and neural synchronization of bilateral prefrontal & parietal cortices while the control group demonstrated further decline.” Group that received IM + TAU outperformed the control group that received only TAU on 21 of 26 assessments (p=.0001 )
“Post-stroke rehab study on patients having strokes 2-23 years prior to study. IM training showed marked improvements in ability to grasp, pronate, and supinate affected arms & hands that had minimal active movement.
