Pat Beats Aphasia with IM

This June is National Aphasia Awareness Month and we want to kick off the month with a happy story. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke estimates that Aphasia affects approximately 1 million people in the US alone, but IM training can help those individuals! Check out how Pat was able to enjoy poetry again after just a few sessions with Interactive Metronome®.

The Sound of Music

Do you remember Congresswoman Gabby Giffords? Well in the 10 months since a bullet left her in critical condition and suffering from aphasia—the inability to speak- Mrs. Giffords is now singing thanks to music therapy!

Pat could independently complete Wii Fitness activities, she had increased attention span, improved thought process and concentration, the ability to multi-task, improved reading comprehension and improved balance. Because Pat made significant gains and her functional status improved dramatically she was discharged from therapy.
