What is Interactive Metronome?
Interactive Metronome is a tool used by chiropractors and other health professionals to assess and treat neurological conditions that have an impact on motor and / or cognitive function. It provides practitioners with the ability to quantify their patients’ current deficits and track any improvements.
The design of the Interactive Metronome allows patients to see their own progress as treatment is happening, increasing motivation towards the ultimate goal of recovery. In general, this therapy is used to improve:
- Language Processing
- Fluency in math and reading
- Control of aggression and impulsivity

How Does Interactive Metronome Work?
The Interactive Metronome utilizes a simple exercise using rhythm and timing by clapping your hands in various sequences which creates increased input into the brain. This activates low areas of function in the brain that are not working at optimum levels by increasing neutron firing.
For the brain to have one healthy output, it needs 40 healthy inputs; the old adage that if you don’t use it, you lose it, is applicable here because the Interactive Metronome is an exercise program that creates healthy input to the brain which improves rhythm and timing out from the brain enabling people to live with a higher degree of brain function.
This improves all forms of brain function including executive functions, organizational tasks, memory, balance and cognitive abilities.
