INTERACTIVE METRONOME

What is Interactive Metronome?

The Interactive Metronome is a brain-based program developed to directly improve the processing abilities that affect attention, motor planning, and sequencing. This in turn may strengthen motor skills, and many fundamental cognitive capacities such as planning, organising, and language.

Clinical research has shown improvements in:

• attention and concentration
• language processing
• behaviour (aggression and impulsivity)
• fine/gross motor skills
• balance and coordination
• strength and endurance

How does it work?

The Interactive Metronome provides a structured, goal-oriented training process that challenges the participant to precisely match a computer generated beat. The participant is instructed to synchronise various movement to this beat which is heard through headphones. The difference in time between the participant’s performance and the computer generated beat are measured in milliseconds and scores are provided to indicate timing accuracy.

What our Interactive Metronome Coach Cameron has found:

• Improvements in sports involving eye-hand and eye-foot coordination (eg. tennis)
• Improvements in body organisation during most physical activities
• Improvements in sustained attention and concentration
• Increased monitoring and adjustment of own attention skills (eg. redirecting self) and physical performance (eg. force control)
