The Interactive Metronome is an effective tool in the rehabilitation of the patient suffering from a traumatic brain injury. These patients have unique needs and their rehabilitation program requires constant adaptation and the use of Interactive Metronome best practices.
The therapist working with the Traumatic Brain Injury patient must modify the Interactive Metronome modality to account for muscle tone, poor coordination, decreased cognitive functioning, poor frustration tolerance, aggressive behaviors and fatigue. This course will review the phases of IM treatment with adaptations specifically pertaining to the needs of the TBI patient. Share and review advanced techniques to facilitate patient participation, patient success and to facilitate the progression towards achieving functional goals. The goal of this course is to offer clinicians with innovative research based treatment approaches for the using the Interactive Metronome with the patient with a TBI.
